Dear ISI parents,
Elections for the PA board for the 2018-2019 school year will take place on Tuesday, May 15th, 2018. We are asking for nominations for the following open positions:
- Pre-elementary presidents: 2 positions
- Elementary president: 1 positions (Jared Anderson will be the 2nd president)
- Blackwell president: 2 positions
- Taurel president: 2 positions
- Secretary-elect (Angelic Gisclair-Haddad will be secretary)
- Volunteer coordinator-elect (Darla Slaughter will be volunteer coordinator)
- Treasurer-elect (Kathryn Maitz will be treasurer)
(please note, under proposed amendments to the bylaws, which would take effect for the 2018-2019 school term, there will be 2 presidents for each school, each serving for 2 years, for a total of 8 presidents, one of whom will be voted to be the PA representative on the school board. Also note that for the other 3 positions, all elects will serve for 2 years, the first as elect and the second as the actual secretary/volunteer coordinator or treasurer.)
Being part of the PA board is a great way to get involved with the school and have your voice and concerns be heard. The PA board meets monthly (in a closed meeting as well as with administration afterward) and we discuss various issues related to the school, vote on teacher funding requests for different projects, and organize different events through the school year including but not limited to the Fall festival, ice cream social and kermesse. This year we have had the option of calling into meetings so that even those of us who have been busy with work requirements, etc.. have been able to attend virtually.
There is no requirement to nominate yourself: Many of us who have served on the PA board have never been on the PA before and a few have only been at ISI for 1 year. This is definitely an opportunity for all and we encourage you to nominate yourself so we can have a diverse representation on the board.
If you are interested in serving on the board and would like to run, please send your email/contact information as well as a brief bio (optional) NO LATER THAN MAY 7th to our current volunteer coordinators, Darla Slaughter and Samar Rahhal, at ISIvolunteercoordinator@yahoo. com.
If you would like to discuss further what being on the PA board entails, feel free to send any of your questions to above email and/or contact directly one of the current board members: Judy Miller, Peter Chen, Scott Edson, Jared Anderson, Anne Andres, Ryan Fuhrmann, Kathryn Maitz, Khalil Diab, Angelic Gisclair-Hadad, Darla Slaughter or Samar Rahhal.
Thank you, and we look forward to having many new representatives on the board for the 2018-2019 school year!
