The PTA is seeking new members.
The organization held its first meeting of the year on Sept. 13 and wants more parents to learn about the Forks Township school.
PTA President Jodi Matase said that the meetings "are a great way for you to see what is going on in our school. We want you to feel welcomed so we can all join forces to accomplish so much this year for the children."
Matase stressed the importance of PTAs, stating that schools that have outstanding parent involvement practices "understand the value in recognizing that vitality, passion and involvement create excellent schools."
"We all want success for our children, and through parent involvement this can be achieved," she said.
The next meeting is scheduled for Oct. 11 at 6:30 p.m. in the library.
The following meetings are scheduled: Nov. 15, Jan. 10, Feb. 14 and March 13 at 6:30 p.m, and April 3 and May 8 at 7:30 p.m.
All meetings will be held in the library.
There will be no general meeting in December and only a June meeting if necessary.
The cost to join the PTA is $6.50 per person.
Checks should be made out to Shawnee Elementary PTA. Please provide your name, phone number and email address, and the name of your child attending school and grade and the teacher's name.
