2019 – 2020 PTA Board Information Session

Are you interested in learning more about your Alston Ridge PTA and how you can participate? We will hold an information session on April 2, 6:00 – 7:00 pm to discuss with parents the role of the PTA and how you can participate as a Board Member or a volunteer.  With the school reassignment, several current PTA Board Members will move to new schools so we will need new parents to join the Board and help keep Alston Ridge a vibrant and welcoming school for staff and families.  We need your help and look forward to seeing you April 2!
