Many thanks to those of you who were able to join us for the PTA meeting last Wednesday. The next PTA meeting will be in the evening on Wednesday, November 20th at 6pm in the library.
On Wednesday we revised the budget and got a lot done. The meeting minutes will be available on the website soon. Welcome to Mark DeLaBarre, our new PTA Co-2nd Vice President!
This week your PTA dollars helped pay for pride flags and stickers which were handed out by 75 Morton's Gender & Sexuality Alliance (GSA) students for National Coming Out Day.
