MAPA Information

As the school year draws to a close it is time to recruit for our MAPA positions for the 2019-2020 school year. We always have such amazing parents helping to keep all of our MAPA activities running smoothly, thank you. If you are interested in being a bigger part of the planning for next year we have several chair positions open and our general board elections will happen at our May 2nd meeting.

MAPA board positions (minus the president) are open for the 2019-2020 school year. If you are interested in being Vice President, Secretary or Treasurer please contact Ange at ange.voraotsady@gmail.com by April 30th. Secretary and Treasurer positions are a one year requirement (although you may run multiple years). The Vice President position is a two year commitment. The Vice President will be the President the following year.

If the board isn’t where you see yourself next year we also have chair positions open.

Safety Chair - in charge of organizing morning parent crossing guards and Red Ribbon Week
Gala Chair - the gala planning committee is evolving so if you are interested in helping with a portion of the gala but not planning the entire event please contact Ange.

We would also like to encourage you to attend our general meeting on May 2nd at 7 pm in the library. We will be holding our board member elections and will have a special thank you for our chairs, co-chairs, room parents, safety committee and all of our families who completed their 40 hours of volunteering with the school. Everyone is welcome to attend and parents are all able to vote.
