The Perfect PTA
If we are looking for the ingredients for the
perfect PTSA what would we look for? Here are some thoughts on what we need for
the ideal PTA.
Members who believe that the PTSA is an
important organization for the support of the welfare and education of
children; who attend meetings, offer opinions and ideas, do not criticize
without offering help and solutions, are willing to participate in programs
and become chairmen whenever possible, and support the school and PTSA by
presenting a positive example to children.
School administrators, Board of
Education, teachers and staff who believe that the PTSA is a vital
organization meant to be an assent, not a nuisance, who help to guide, value
and support the goals and objects of the PTSA.
A president who is tireless,
enthusiastic, well-organized, knowledgeable of parliamentary procedures,
committed to the objects of the PTSA, diplomatic and punctual.
A vice-president who is eager to learn,
interested in growing as a PTSA leader, willing to assist as needed,
knowledgeable of the PTSA organization and its goals and is eager to take
advantage of opportunities to promote the PTSA.
A secretary who loves to write but
understands that too many words are as bad as too few words, is champion
speller, is reliable, knows and loves PTSA, is accurate, helpful, efficient
A treasurer who understands bookkeeping,
is efficient, neat, honest, knows deadlines and respects them and knows the
importance of record keeping.
