First PTA Meeting for 2017

Our first PTA meeting for the 2017-2018 school year will be held on September 26, 2017 at 6pm. This first meeting will be held in the Cafeteria at West Friendship.

We had originally planned to hold the meeting on September 14th, but a number of parents informed us that there would be a conflict with Mount View Middle’s back to school night.

We will order pizza for the meeting, so please bring your students with you for the night to meet the board and committee chairs. We plan to discuss volunteer opportunities and upcoming events.

We have a number of openings in the committee chairs. Please let us know if you have any interest in helping out. If you have questions about what the activities are please do not hesitate to email us at

In the mean time, we are starting our membership drive. Forms will be distributed at Back to School night, but electronic registration is the fastest and easiest way to join up. We will send out membership cards within the next two weeks.

First Day Coffee
