The Garinger PTA is back up and rolling.
Garinger High school has not had an official PTA since 2008, but Ms. Bobbie Mabe is changing that.
Ms. Mabe is the new family advocate and gardener at the high school. She plans to have fun activities for students, families, and staff. Her goal is “to bring the community together and support our students.”
Mabe will also be taking charge of the executive board positions on the PTA, which include President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary.
Garinger’s new parent teacher association will be open to both teachers and parents.
To further the involvement of teachers, Mr. Drye, Garinger high school principal, is asking teachers pay a $5 membership fee to wear jeans every Friday in September. Teachers are encouraged to display their membership cards on their room door.
For more information, people should see Ms. Mabe in room 100C. There they can pay their membership fee and learn more about the executive board positions.
So come out, join the club and get involved.
