CHS PTSA Volunteers Needed!
If you’ve never been involved or are looking for a way to serve at Hooch next school year, PTSA is a super way!
With your student entering into high school, now is a great time to serve by “shadowing” a current position. By “shadowing” this is a great opportunity to “get your feet wet “& aid in the transition for the following school year. We at Hooch have a few members rolling off their chairperson positions at the end of the 2017-18 school year and would love for you to serve.
A few areas to serve in are Communications, Membership, Legislative, Honor Roll recognition & Staff Appreciation. There are many more opportunities to get involved, see the attached form. We cannot offer the programs/ activities to our students without your help. I would encourage you to get involved and have a voice in yours student’s future whatever that capacity might be.
Any questions or if you’re needing more detail please contact Suzie Stagmeier at firstname.lastname@example.org
