PTA BOARD NOMINATIONS
Calling all parents.....we are getting ready to nominate a new PTA board and we want all interested parents to inquire! Do you want to be more involved, help with school activities, have some say on how the PTA money is spent and just help Emerson students in general??? Then maybe a position on the PTA board is for you. This is a 2 year commitment, with 5-6 meetings a year. Please contact Megan Brash with questions, firstname.lastname@example.org or 773-910-7275
