Upcoming PTSA Meeting On Wednesday, March 16th

The next PTSA meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, March 16th at 8:30 am.  The meetings normally take place in the conference room in the counselor’s office.  Sometimes people start showing up a little early, around 8:15 am (sometimes they don’t), but the official meeting will start at 8:30 sharp.

At this next meeting, we will discuss our spring fundraiser, Bruin Madness basketball challenge.  Also up for discussion will be a pros and cons comparison of PTSA vs PTO as a future path for our organization.  And lastly, we will continue to look for and nominate officers for next year’s Executive Board.  We’ll also probably talk about Teacher Appreciation Week as well, and the lunch buffet that we will be serving.

As always, our meetings are open to the public.  Anyone looking to become more involved with Ballard High School, or just to learn more about what is happening behind the scenes, should certainly attend!

Schedule permitting, Ballard’s Principal, Dr. Eddleman will attend and may spend some time giving a report on how the school year is progressing as well as answer a few questions.
