It’s time for PTA Elections
Serving as a member of the PTA Board is a generous gift of your time and talent to our community, and an amazing way to help shape a powerful learning environment for all our children. We hope you’ll consider running for a position, or nominating someone you know will be just perfect for the role.
Aldama PTA Board elections for the 2019-2020 school year will be held on Thursday, April 25, 2019 at 6 pm. To qualify for a board position, you must be a paid member for 30 days before elections (Join PTA here!) and self-nominate on the day of the elections, at our meeting at 6 pm. We absolutely encourage you to run, and all the current board members would be happy to answer your questions about any of these positions.
