I remember those first years of elementary school, when I was a young parent and eager to get involved. I decided to join the PTA and other school volunteering programs, so I could stay connected...
Then it happened...one PTA Board meeting lasted 3 hours! Everyone was talking over each other and playing "my child is the best". That was the meeting that I decided to minimize my involvement with the PTA.
I stayed involved via my membership, so they could still do good things for the school.
As my child moved to middle school, I became involved once again with the PTA, but didn't attend meetings.
Then one day they said they needed to fill the President position. Since I had been on the board in minor rolls, I though:
"HEY! If I was President, then I could set the vibe of the PTSA and also have great meetings that lasted no longer than one hour!"
So, that's what I did. I respect everyone's time and have efficient and productive monthly meetings, and allow each board chair to do their thing! We work as a team with BHS Admin to generously support Buchholz Students and Teachers.
