6th Grade PTA Member-at-Large
Each year, the PTA elects two members-at-large from the 6th grade to ensure representation on the board for the incoming class. Members-at-large are expected to attend regular monthly meetings for the Executive Board and General Meetings. They are also expected to chair at least one event. Executive Board meetings are typically held on the 2nd Friday of the month and General Meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. All meetings start at 8:45 a.m. If you're interested, please send email us for more information--include the title Member-at-Large in the subject line.
SLT (School Leadership Team)
As with the PTA, one SLT slot is saved for an incoming 6th grade parent. The SLT is tasked with developing a comprehensive educational plan for the school and is comprised of parents, teachers, and the principal. Meetings are held once per month, usually on the 2nd Wednesday starting at 7:45 a.m. For more information on the responsibilities of the SLT, please see the official DOE link.
This year we will have two SLT slots open but only one is reserved for a 6th grade parent. The other slot is open to the entire school. Please email us if you're interested--include the title SLT in the subject line.
Book Fair Chair
In order to encourage our children to read, the PTA hosts two book fairs each year. The book fairs coincide with Parent Teacher Conferences so that parents get the opportunity to shop the fair too. This year the first fair is scheduled from 10/30 - 11/6. If you have experience running a fair or would like to try it, we would welcome your help chairing the fair. It's a great event to co-chair with a friend. Whether you're experienced or not, we'll walk you through it. Just email us to let us know if you're interested and we'll get you started. Please include the title Book Fair Chair in the subject line
We are looking for someone to update weekly announcements and the calendar on the school's website at www.104m.org. It would mostly require using the content of the weekly Baruch Blast to update the calendar and home page. Occasionally other content areas may need updating such as the afterschool or 8th grade. It's an easy job that can be done from home and requires about 1 hour per week. We use eChalk and the interface is very easy to learn. Please email us if you're interested in helping us--include the title Website Updates in the subject line.
We are looking for someone to take over management of the Baruch branded merchandise sold by the PTA. This would involve organizing in preparation for sales and keeping track of stock and reordering when needed. Merchandise is sold during the first week of the school year, during parent teacher conferences and at events like the school play. Ordering is usually done before the start of the school year or before new families orientation in June if necessary. The person managing the merchandise does not have to be in charge of the actual sales. Again, this would be a great job for two friends with minimal time commitment. Please email us if you're interested--include the title Merchandise Manager in the subject line.
