SUBJECT: NFE PTA Newsletter - September 24, 2021

I hope everyone is successfully getting back into the swing of things with the new school year!

In a typical year, the PTA Budget for the upcoming school year would have been approved by our general membership at an in-person meeting in September. Given current circumstances, we felt it best to approve our 2021-2022 budget and other financial reports via MTK. A message was sent out Thursday evening (September 23) with a link to the online voting form on MTK. If you are a PTA member, please complete the online voting form by September 30th at 11:59PM.

And just as an additional reminder, we still have a few vacant PTA board positions. If parents are looking for a way to participate, volunteer, and/or get involved, this is an ideal way since we are currently on hold for most other volunteering activities for now.

2021/22 PTA President
