October PTA Meeting – Date & Time Change: Thursday, Oct 22nd at 8pm

DATE & TIME CHANGE: This month we have to shift our monthly meeting. It will now be next Thursday (Oct. 22nd) at 8pm. We hope you can join us! We’ll be meeting on-line via Zoom.

The reason for the shift is the PTA Equity Project (PEP) Committee is holding a Town Hall on Wednesday (Oct. 21st) at 7pm to present the One Fund initiative to the District 65 community. If you are available, we strongly urge you to attend the town hall to learn about One Fund. We will be voting at our November Walker PTA meeting on if the Walker PTA community will participate in the initiative.
