Seeking Chairpersons for 2014-15 School Year!

The PTA is gearing up for next year and all the fun and beneficial programs we provide for

the kids and families for Aldrin. Chair people are vital to the success of these programs.

Many of these positions can be done from home and the time commitment varies according

to the event. Consider chairing an event with a friend!

This is a great way to be part of the amazing Aldrin community

and help the PTA and the school.

We look forward to hearing from you.
Remember, working together, anything is possible!
