As a board member, you get the chance to directly support the school administration, teachers, students, and their families for the school year. Board members help bring people together and create a community for both the children and their caregivers. 

 

Consider joining the PTA's leadership team and help it continue to make a difference. The Nominating Committee welcomes all nominations. You may nominate as many people as you like, including yourself. Here are the detailed Job Descriptions of each PTA Board role. Questions? Please contact nomcom@marshall-pta.org.

 

PTA INFO & BOARD MEMBERS

About the Parent Teachers Association (PTA)

Marshall Elementary School PTA is an organization for our school community run by our school community. Specifically, the PTA is a volunteer organization that promotes partnership between the families of Marshall students and the teachers, administrators, and staff at our school.

 

The PTA is led by an Executive Board, which provides families with the leadership necessary to be active and effective partners with the school. It disseminates information, raises issues and concerns, anchors the school in the community, and represents parent interests. Executive Board positions are the only PTA roles that involve elections. Parents who would like to volunteer can nominate themselves when the elections happen in the spring of each year.

 

Here are the detailed Job Descriptions of each PTA Board role. 

Interested in being involved in our school? There are many opportunities for parents and community members to get involved. You can find out more here.


While the PTA is run by the Executive Board, every parent is welcomed and encouraged to attend and participate fully in any Executive Board meeting
, and nearly every action by the PTA Executive Board involves consultation and information sharing with parents and guardians at the PTA general membership meetings.

 

All PTA meetings are open to the public and parents are encouraged to attend. The dates of all meetings are published at the beginning of the year, and minutes will be posted following each meeting. We want to make sure there are ample ways for every parent to discuss things with the board members and help collaborate on big decisions. Some important votes (e.g., the annual budget, new officer elections) are conducted at general meetings, often with opportunities to vote electronically. For a schedule of this year’s meetings please check our online calendar.
