PTA Council is a chance for leaders from all of the Berkeley schools to share issues, strategies, and information and to seek advice. Why struggle alone when, working together, we are so much more powerful?
DID YOU KNOW: That PTA Council gets a guaranteed 5 minute slot to speak at ALL School Board Meetings?
PTA Council Meetings are open to the public, and we welcome all members of the BUSD community to join us as we work together to address ways to best serve the children enrolled in our wonderful public schools. Please share this invitation with your school e-trees, as well as all PTA leaders at your school, and add the dates listed below to your school site calendars. We serve pizza and treats at all of our meetings, so no need to rush to eat before you come!
