May 11, 2022 PTA News: Garden and Library Volunteers Needed! PTA Board Elections

10 May, 2022 | Return|

Dear Families,

We have two great upcoming opportunities to volunteer at Burbank!

Spring Garden Enrichment Activities

Each grade will have a day in late May/early June when they come outside to our Garden Classroom and Vegetable Garden to do enrichment activities - it is a highlight of the spring season for the PTA!  We need parents to help run these hands-on school day activities and also parents interested in garden care activities outside of school hours.  If you are not already in our Burbank Garden Google Group and you'd like to get involved, please email us at maryleeburbankpta@gmail.com.  Absolutely no experience is needed!

June 15th - Library "Shelf Read"

It's time for another shelf read! A "shelf read" is when we go through the shelves of the library and put things back in order. It is slow work, but the more volunteers we get, the faster it goes. You do not need to come on time or stay the whole time. Join us 8:45-11:00am on Wednesday, June 15th by signing up here: https://signup.com/go/uKykUdX.

Thank you so much for your help! Our library aides, Barbara Watson and Joanne MacIsaac will appreciate it.

Volunteer Requirement Reminder and Update from School Nurse

Please remember that volunteers still need to have their CORI form completed with the Burbank office and their COVID-19 vaccination document shared with the Burbank nurse.  In addition, Nurse Becca has asked us to remind all PTA volunteers that during this time all volunteers should review the Belmont Schools symptom tracker for themselves (just like with your students) and to not come in if you have any symptoms, including allergy symptoms.  We greatly appreciate all those willing to volunteer and the school and PTA thank you for your cooperation!

2022-23 PTA Board Elections

We will soon be announcing our final PTA meeting of the year, at which we will be electing new board members for the 2022-23 school year.  We do have a list of interested individuals, but if you are interested and have not yet spoken to Heather or Andrea about being in the election, please reach out to us at maryleeburbankpta@gmail.com by Monday, May 16.  Open positions include Co-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and VP of Events.

Happy Spring,

Heather Rubeski & Andrea Fisichella

Burbank PTA Co-Presidents
