Today’s One Thing is The PTA Clothing Bank!
(January 24, 2023)

We’ve been inundated with donations (which is a good thing)! We really need your help getting these donations sorted.  

I noticed one PTA organizing a meet for breakfast, then going to work at the Clothing Bank together.  What do you think?

Our next two days for volunteering are Thurs. Jan 26  & Thurs. Feb. 9 – 10:00am – 4:30pm.

One Thing – Reflections Winners!!! (January 26, 2023)

Congratulations to our Council Reflections winners!

We will celebrate these young artists tonight as part of the SPS University at Hillcrest High School.

As is our custom, when school is cancelled for any reason, we also cancel our Springfield Council of PTAs meetings. Our meeting scheduled for February is cancelled due to school closing due to inclement weather.

Our next meeting will be Wed. March 1 and will be our annual School Board Candidate forum at at 9:30am at Delaware Elementary.

As part of our service to the community, each year the Springfield Council of PTAs hosts a school board candidate forum prior to the election.  This year the forum will be held Wednesday, March 1, 2023, as part of our monthly meeting at Delaware Elementary School (1505 S Delaware Ave, Springfield, MO 65804), beginning at 9:30am.  All candidates have been invited to participate and will have equal opportunity for answering questions.  This is a Q&A forum and not a debate. 

Springfield Council of PTAs is made up of parents, teachers, school administrators and students in Springfield.  Due to the PTA’s non-profit 501(c)(3) status, PTAs cannot support or oppose candidates for public office, rate candidates in any fashion, conduct research or analysis for a candidate or give membership lists to candidates.  However, we can sponsor public forums such as this in which all candidates are invited to participate.  We look forward to hosting this event for you, our members, so that you can make an informed decision when you head to the polls to vote on April 4.  

Please plan to join us at our March meeting and enjoy another snow day!
