SPECIAL PTA MEETING - MEASURE SMS - Monday, Sept 24, 6.30pm
At our last meeting August 29, Grant PTA’s Executive Board agreed to support the new bond, Measure SMS. On Monday, September 24, we will be inviting a representative from the SMS campaign, to Grant, to share their knowledge of the bond and answer our questions. At the end of the night we will hold a vote as to whether we, as a school, would like to support Measure SMS. If the vote is to support the measure a donation to the campaign will be recommended at our next PTA Executive Board Meeting on Tuesday, September 25. This recommendation, regarding a donation, will be brought to the membership for their vote at our General PTA Meeting on Wednesday, October 3rd.
