With July 1 and new terms kicking off next week, we wanted to post a few reminders and hints about getting things off to a great start for your next school year.
SURE - it's summer. And as volunteers - it's so very important for us all to check out a little and enjoy the downtime!
If you are looking to read a little during some quiet time - National just posted their 2016-17 Back to School planning kit - it's broken down by role/functional area and is a super awesome resource to start your own local unit planning.

Lots of units will hold planning meetings over the summer too - in particular to start to iron out budget. Once mid-August hits, it's crazy train through mid to late September with getting all our students settled and back in the groove - so units that get some of their planning done earlier always say it helps.
Wake PTA leadership will be on hand August 3rd from 9AM til about 5PM at the NCPTA office (3501 Glenwood Avenue Raleigh, NC 27612) to meet and greet - and hand out the updated PTA packet with membership cards, NCPTA login info, Reflections info, how to join Wake PTA details... lots of great stuff! Come on down and meet us!
Don't forget to get your Annual Financial review/audit procedures completed and submitted to NCPTA. Those are due before the end of August. Also update the new incoming officer by September 1. (Full checklist posted here... NC PTA Officer Checklist)
Lastly - SUMMER LEADERSHIP TRAINING presented by Wake PTA is scheduled for Thursday September 1, 2016. This event is held at WCPSS Crossroads II and registration links will go live August 1 - stay tuned for detailed information on sessions!
