PTO Executive Board Meeting
Sunday, August 9, 2015
KCSMA Media Center
Once a month, the officers of the PTO meet at the school to plan events, discuss ideas, review finances, and deal with any other PTO items.
These meetings are open to all KCSMA families and staff. This is a great way to see what is going on behind the scenes. Comments and questions from all attendees are welcome, but only officers and committee chairs may vote at executive board meetings.
Throughout the school year, there are several general PTO meetings. At these meetings, the officers and committee chairs give updates on upcoming events, finances, etc. New officers are voted in at these meetings, when needed, with a vote by all present, current PTO members.
The PTO has several committees that need a chairperson. The meeting on August 9th will provide an opportunity to gather more information on those committees. If your schedule allows, please join us!
PTO memberships will be available at meet and greet, and information will be given to every student in their classroom welcome packet. We know your main priority is meeting the teachers and staff, but if you have time, please stop by the PTO table and meet some of this year’s PTO officers and learn about the great things our PTO does for the school.
PTO memberships are $5* per family or staff member, and we would love to have 100% participation this year. PTO is the number one support system for our teachers, students, and staff. We encourage everyone to join and show your support.
*We do not want finances to be a barrier to anyone having access to PTO membership, so we extend the option to those who are able to sponsor other families or staff members.
☆☆☆Looking for a Carpool Partner?☆☆☆
Carpooling with another KCSMA family is a great way to help the environment, save time, and lessen the congestion in carline. Some families share driving duties by taking turns driving and picking up. Others help pay gas costs for their child to ride with another family.
Visit the PTO’s Facebook Page, Kennesaw Charter Science and Math Academy – PTO, to try to find a carpool buddy!
The PTO needs volunteers to help with the membership table at Meet and Greet and the Back to School Tailgate party on Friday, July 31, 2015. The time slots are for one hour each, but please feel free to sign up for more than one. The sign up is below. Thank you!
I need two volunteers on Thursday from 2-4pm to help prepare PTO membership materials. No lifting is required.
I also need several volunteers on Friday from 1-4pm to help put together student info packets. No lifting is required.
Both days, we will be meeting in the media center. If you can help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know.

The Green Committee will be hosting a back to school grounds clean-up, and we are looking for volunteers. We will be weeding, picking up litter, and planting. Get a head start on volunteering and join us. We encourage everyone to wear gloves, and bring a weed trimmer if you can.
Can’t make the event or want to help even more?
We are always in need of fresh pine straw and would love to have annuals that will survive the next few months. Violas (not pansies) are always nice as they will tolerate the heat and last until the frost. We would also be happy to find homes for donated perennials or Crepe Myrtles (new or from your yard).
