Your Springfield Council of PTAs is hosting a FREE School of Information on Friday, April 29th, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Wilson’s Creek 5-6 Intermediate Center at 4035 W. Weaver Road, Battlefield, MO.
We will have a Baked Potato/Salad Bar available at the beginning of the evening. Sorry, no childcare will be available.
All who attend will learn more about their PTA duties through informational workshop sessions and interactive discussions with other PTA units. Attached is the schedule for the evening. Workshops for President, Treasurer, Secretary, Bylaws, Advocacy, Membership, Communication, Fundraising, Parliamentary Procedure, Parent Engagement, and Reflections will be offered.
There will be 3 Sessions of Workshops. Each workshop is 40 minutes in length with the exception of the Presidents’ and Treasurers’. The Presidents’ workshop will be two consecutive sessions covering a wide range of information–plan to attend both sessions. The Treasurers’ workshop is two consecutive sessions and a third optional session for even more information.
We will also offer some workshops at two different times–covering the same information–plan to attend only one.
Local council and state officers will be available for any questions you may have. We encourage all units to send your officers as you prepare for the upcoming school year.
Please RSVP to Carrie Windes at email@example.com with the name(s) of all attending and which workshops each will be going to by TOMORROW, TUESDAY, APRIL 26TH. This will ensure we have enough food and enable our presenters to know how many to plan for that evening.

Currently, Missouri incarcerates youth charged as adults with adult prisoners, even before their trial. HB 1641 would fix this by seeing to it that these kids (who are aged 16 and younger) would be housed in facilities that are far more appropriate for them.
Please take action on this issue at this link: Take Action Now!

Congratulations to Hillcrest, Pittman, Boyd, Central, Twain, Cherokee, Pipkin, Delaware, Robberson, Jeffries, Pershing Elem., and Bissett for increasing your memberships this year!
