Hey South Shore families!

Please come to the meeting on May 24th to share your ideas for the PTSA! If you have ever been interested in a leadership role, now is the time. We will be electing officers for the next school year, and all positions are open. I've put my name in for President, but I encourage anyone that has an interest in shaping the PTSA's future to consider putting your name in as well. The more voices we have at the table the better we will be at supporting our students and school.

See you on the 24th!!
