The Ronald Reagan PTA loves providing community building events, activities for students that allow creativity and an opportunity to further apply what they have learned in the classroom, and we do some fundraising to allow their academic experience to go beyond just what the teachers can provide on their own. All of this is accomplished when many well intentioned people come together.
There are so many ways in which you can help! We have a variety of activities and events that need various amounts of help. There are too many to list them all here. But you can find all of the events on individual tabs on our SignUp Genius page. Please know that you are never left alone to complete a task. The executive board has knowledge and experience that they will share. Many hands make the work light for all.
The PTA Elections for officers will be help in May and we are in a desperate situation.
The officers of the PTA cannot hold an office for more than two consecutive years per the National and State PTA Guidelines, the current board has served two years for each position.
Teacher’s cannot hold the position of President or Treasurer per State and District guidelines. Teachers are making up the bulk of our membership and attendance.
These positions require some skill sets and many hours of volunteer work. Per the State Guidelines, our Insurance company, and the IRS, the Treasurer must be bond-able and have experience in IRS acceptable standards of accounting. They must have working knowledge of bookkeeping programs, full charge bookkeeping, and Excel/Google Sheets.
If the Treasurer does not possess these skills the PTA must employ someone who does.
The strongest PTA’s have great Committee Chairs. We have a list of GUIDELINES for this, mostly set up by the State and National PTA. All of the fundraisers that we have done this year have been without committee’s and has fallen on the President and Treasurer. This has given the illusion that they are controlling, when all they are trying to do keep the PTA viable. Our goal is to have Committee heads in place by the end of the year so that they will have time to plan events. It is imperative that they act within the guidelines so that we can protect our good standing.
Please take a minute to see where you can help. Committee Chairs are usually elected from the team. Please sign up as a volunteer for a committee and when you get together you can select a Chair or Co/Chairs.
