Spotlight on Legislature PTA Opening

The Salem Middle PTA board has an opening for a legislature position. This position would monitor state and local government actions for items that could affect Salem Middle school. They would present the topics, if there are any, to the board at our monthly meetings. This position helps keep the PTA aware of what is happening with education on a government level. So, if you follow local government this is the volunteer position for you. If this is something that you think you could help with or if you have any questions, please let Cathy Ketterer know at cathyketterer@yahoo.com
