Dear Rockwell Community,

Thank you to those who have served our school community this year (and past years) and thank you to those who have already committed to fill positions for next year!

Rockwell PTA has many positions available and we need your talent! What's the difference between a board and non-board position? Board members meet monthly to discuss, approve, and vote on grant requests and to discuss PTA matters. 

Good news! Board positions are filled,  but we're still looking for lots of chair positions!  

  • PTA Awards Committee/Volunteer celebration (Spring '16 - to coordinate nominations forms and awards for exceptional volunteers and staff members.  June for the event.) Contact: Ami King
  • PTA Nominating Committee (Spring '16. Helping find candidates for filling the following year's open PTA positions.) Contact: Cari Scotkin
  • Lake WA Schools Foundation Ambassador (Attend approximately 2 meetings during the school and keep our school updated on the LWSF via Bugle Articles) - More Info Here) Contact: Cari Scotkin
  • Charitable-Giving Chair: Organize one to two food drives (or similar) during the school and communicate details with school, staff and students Contact: Cari Scotkin
Contact VP Events: Jennifer Myrick
  • 5th Grade Promotion Chair (June 2016, typically incoming 4th grade parents run this so the 5th grade parents can enjoy it. Help out this year and train for next year!) A lead parent and a committee is preferable.

 What exactly does the PTA do?

We organize to make Norman Rockwell an academically enriching environment for our children by providing financial and volunteer support for the following Rockwell programs and many more:  Educational assemblies, visits from the Toy Maker (enriching STEM learning), Salmon in the Classroom, grade level grants for educational enrichment in the classrooms, buses for educational field trips, Math in Action programs, art docent program, local author visits, school musical, after-school programs, yearbook, teacher appreciation, the weekly Bugle newsletter & PTA website for parents, and much more. Additionally, we plan many special family events throughout the year such as the BBQ, Ice Cream Social & Art Showcase, Heritage Night, Bingo Night, and the school dance. More about PTA here. 
Why we need your help:
Rockwell PTA is made of parents....just like you. We have jobs, we have small children, we have other commitments. Gone are the days when the PTA was only for non-working parents. We ask all of our parents to lend a hand in some way at Rockwell - whether it is volunteering in the classroom, chairing an event, or serving on the board.  Parent involvement is a big part of what makes our school so excellent. Plus you get to know more parents, kids, and staff at Rockwell!
Please take the time to consider one of these available positions. Any position can also have a you can find a friend or someone to partner with and chair it together. We can't do it without all of you. *Unfilled positions may result in events or programs being canceled. 
Have Questions about a position?
Email our PTA President, Cari Scotkin, or anyone on our current board
Let's get all these roles filled before school starts!
Thank you!
Rockwell PTA
