PTSA General/Elections Meeting: Thursday, April 23, 7:00pm (rescheduled)

We hope you and your loved ones are all staying healthy and well during this time. It is hard to believe that school will not resume this year and that we will be sheltered in place for several more weeks, at least. It is important to stay home and know that we are all working together to flatten the curve.

We have rescheduled our April 9th meeting to April 23rd at 7pm. This will be a virtual meeting and all members are invited to join the meeting. The meeting information is still being finalized, so we will send it prior to the meeting. Elections will be held during this meeting! All current PTSA members are eligible to vote for the 2020-2021 PTSA board. Here is the slate of officers as presented by the nominating committee:

President: Yvonne Wong
Vice President: Heidi Wolcott
Treasurer: Tom Lawrence
Secretary: Theresa Stenhouse
Historian: Chris Russell
Auditor: Mozy de Costa Pinto

Additional nominations can be accepted at the meeting. We will send the conference call information prior to the meeting on April 23. If you have any questions, please email lincolnhighschoolptsa@gmail.com.
