PTA Seeks Co-Treasurer
The Burroughs PTA is currently seeking an officer for Co-Treasurer for the 2018-19 school year. The position is a two-year commitment, but would mainly shadow the Treasurer next year. Thank you to outgoing treasurer Angie Phillips, who has shared her expertise and put in place many streamlined systems to make this a more efficient position. The position is critical in supporting PTA committees, school trips and activities, and the school budget. If you know a good candidate or would like more information, please email Angie Phillips or Jennie Hartman.

Box Tops Co-Coordinator Needed
Each month the top class, or classes (depending on the contest), wins a 30-45 minute board game party. The Co-Coordinator would contact the teacher to coordinate a party date/time and obtain a list of classroom parents to assist with the games. The Co-Coordinator would also help plan party variations for the 2018-19 school year like minute-to-win-it or arts-and-crafts parties. Duties would also include some assistance with Box Top collection and counting as well as updating the bulletin board in the atrium. Time commitment: approximately one hour per week, both during and after school hours. Please email Lara Tickle with questions or interest.
