Parents Engaged Steering Committee Meeting – Weds. Aug. 20

The next planning meeting for ETHS Parents Engaged will be next Wednesday, August 20th at 6:30 pm  at 27 Live (27Live is located at 1012 Church Street.).  The D65 PTA Council kickoff meeting will be right afterwards at 7:30.

We are looking forward to growing this new organization and need lots of help so thank you for your interest and enthusiasm!

Here are some of the areas – multiple people needed for each area:

  • Management of listserve: Send invites to new members,
  • Information poster: post reminders to meetings, post event announcements
  • Planning & Promotion of 3 school wide programs/meetings per year, including creating communication pieces, coordinating refreshments, coordination publicity, inviting participants
  • Liaison to the administration:  Because ParentsEngaged is run by a steering committee it is important to provide a “single point of contact” for the administration for things like publicity, room reservations, etc.
  • Volunteer Coordinator:  for PR during school events

Please reply and let us know if you can attend next Wednesday.  Of course if you cannot make it we will keep you in the loop, just let us know any ideas you have and where you would like to help.

Also, please forward to others you think would be interested.

ETHS Parents Engaged Seeks Volunteers for Freshman Orientation

ETHS Parents Engaged will have an information table during the upcoming Freshman Orientation:

  • Monday, Aug 18 10 am – 4 pm
  • Tuesday, Aug 19 3 pm – 6 pm

We are in need of volunteers to stand at the information table and invite parents to sign up for our yahoo email list and also to inform them about what Parents Engaged has to offer including the 3 planned evening programs throughout the year.

There will be email sign-up sheets and flyers to hand out that have all the information.

Even if you are new to the group, please consider volunteering for just an hour. It is a great way to help the new freshman parents connect with current parents.

Please email Jane McCarthy with any time you can help out.
