STEP 2: MEET YOUR MEMBERSHIP CHAIR:
Dear Seven Locks Family,
I'd like to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Rena Stern and I am the Membership Chair of the PTA at Seven Locks. Our PTA focuses on empowering your child, your teacher, your school staff, and you, our PTA families to have both an academically challenging and socially engaging year round experience at SLES. The SLES PTA has a direct, positive impact on your children. Check out the box to the right of your screen on this page to see how. This is only a small sampling of all the wonderful things the PTA does to enhance a Seven Locks students' school experience.
We are asking that you join the PTA as either a Single Membership(1 Parent Household) with $25annual membership due or a Family Membership(2 Parent household) with $50 annual membership dueand to make an additional recommended PTA annual donation of $75 per child enrolled at SLES . (See box below for further explanation). Your voluntary donations allows the PTA to keep providing the Seven Locks community with all of the programs and services that make our school a wonderful place to learn. THESE UPFRONT ANNUAL DUES and PER CHILD AND OTHER VOLUNTARY DONATIONS enable us to fund almost 60% of our annual fundraising goals for the year and are critical to sustaining annual operating plans that benefit your children and the school.
