Dear Members,
    Thank you for your continued support of PTA at your local, district, and state levels. Members of the LA State PTA met via Zoom in an effort to ensure our PTA's can continue once school resumed. We gave power to the Districts to decide if elections could be held virtually, by email or if permitted in person. Our District Presidents with their boards did the best they could. We all hoped that by now we would be on the other side of this pandemic and moving forward. Since that is not the case State has had to reevaluate our position on many levels and we have asked our Districts to do the same. 

       Please seek your Districts guidance for elections. State will be hosting a State Zoom Convention in May 2021. On the agenda will be a set of revised Bylaws and Elections. I encourage you to get as involved as you can this year. While we may not be allowed on campus as much as in prior years, our voices will still be loud and strong. It is time for us to write, speak, join and be involved. 

                                                               Thank you, Shannon M. Howard LA PTA President 2020-21
