Welcome back!

It is August and the start of the new school year is quickly approaching.  Irving ISD Council of PTAs will be offering training to all local PTAs throughout the year.  Our first training will be for PTA Presidents and Treasurers.  Please watch your emails for additional training dates in September and October.

Next Monday, August 18 at 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM we will be hosting PRESIDENT and TREASURER’s TRAINING.  Council PTA will offer free babysitting for school aged children.

Please RSVP to Mary Carter at mhgcarter@msn.com.

The training will be held at the Administration Building on Highway 183 between Story and Beltline Rd.  We will be in Training Rooms 1 and 2 (upstairs).  Please park in the rear of the building and enter through the doors under the big awning.

I would like to encourage each one of you to attend this training.  Even if you are a second year President, I promise that you will learn something new.  There are rules that have changed and it is very important that you get the new information.  Training is key to a successful PTA.

Presidents – please forward this email to your Treasurers.  I have a handful of Treasurers names, but not all PTAs provided me that information.  I would prefer someone to get the email twice than not at all.

Membership Information

“Back The Future” is the name of the new Texas PTA campaign that will remain our membership theme for many, many years to come. Essentially, Back The Future means community-supported education – emphasis on community. This long-term campaign represents our strong belief that an investment in the education of Texas children is an investment in our communities’ future. Let’s work together to inspire community members of all ages and walks of life to Back The Future by joining PTA. With your PTA’s active involvement, I am confident that Back The Future will make PTA relevant to new audiences!
