Our back to school night on September 5th is also our first association meeting (at 5:15) where we will be adopting our new bylaws and voting on our budget. This will be for our current association members. We will also show our incoming association members what it is like to be a member of the BPE PTA!! As members of the Bay Park Elementary PTA, your vote is crucial in adopting our new amended bylaws and voting on our budget for the 2018/2019 school year.
Missing the amendments? If you are a current member and did not receive an email from the President, please reach out to the Fiona at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will be more than happy to send the amendments to you personally.
Thank you and enjoy the remaining days of summer vacation!
