Default OMG PTA DRAMA!

As most of you know I am now on the executive board of our school's PTA, my job is Secretary. My closest friend is the Treasurer and so far it's been extremely rewarding but a huge time consumer. My friend, Barbara, and I have noticed a bit of disention amoung the President (this is her 3rd term) and our VP of Volunteer Services. Neither one is right or wrong, they both need to alter their style a bit.

Well, last night after a few sharp emails, the President and her Co (long story) quit with no notice. The principal is shocked, we are all shocked and quite disappointed. The least she could do is give us a two week notice.

I spent my entire evening on the phone trying to patch up all this mess. Our new VP of Academic Enrichment may take the President's job but then our job will be open. We have awesome volunteers but it's very tough to find people who will step up and take a leadership job.

Oh well, I just wanted to vent. I have so much on my plate this week, I really didn't need this extra zinger!

My goodness! What a mess.

We haven't received any information about when out PTO meetings are. They have done all kinds of fundraiser type stuff, but I haven't seen anything about inviting parents to the meetings.

I hope everything gets worked out and you don't have extra added stress for long!

Wow, what a mess! I hope someone will step up to the open roles.

Connor's school sent home a flyer, and they had a PTO meeting one day this week at 3pm! What's that about - anyone who works can't go! Very frustrating for me.

Also, as a side note, I wish they'd call it PTA, I get so confused! Our vacation/sick leave at work is lumped together as paid time off, or PTO, so that's what I think of when I see the initials.

Sheesh I hope the open positions are filled soon...and that it doesn't cause much more work for you. What is it about some women that they butt heads so much when they are in positions of power??? We had the same sort of thing happen in the MOM's club I'm a member of, makes me want NO part of being in any sort of adminstrative position.

And why DID they change it to PTO anyway?
