Welcome to the PTA! It is my honor to serve as your PTA President for the 2018-2019 school year. The La Entrada Middle School PTA is part of a larger California State PTA that is one of the most powerful and effective child advocacy groups in the nation. Our La Entrada PTA is part of this vibrant, inclusive group of families and staff who want you to feel home in our school community. To sweeten the deal, we provide complimentary membership to all La Entrada staff and families.
This year, my focus is on creating opportunities for building relationships. These days, we too often fall back on placing announcements in the newsletter or sending a group email to encourage participation in the PTA. However, to truly build community, we need to take the time for one-on-one and small-group discussions, like we will at our in-person and virtual Parent Cafés. We will also incorporate community-building exercises into our General Membership Meetings whenever possible.
This website (plus our online community, the PTA Portal) is your virtual key to staying up-to-date about the PTA’s programs and events. Access the district directory, subscribe to the Leopard’s Spot (eNewsletter), sign up to volunteer and more on the Portal.
If you have questions or would just like to connect over a cup of tea, please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Heather Hopkins, 2018-2019 La Entrada PTA President
