The 2016-2017 Yearbook Committee will be holding its first meeting in the Library on Thursday January 12, 2017 at 6pm. We are looking for volunteers, no experience necessary, just a willingness to work with a team to put out a great yearbook. Meetings will most likely be once a month, maybe an extra before yearbook goes to final print. I am also looking for any pictures anyone has taken at any school event thus far or anyone willing to take pictures at any future events they attend. The picture quality is better with a camera so those are preferred, but we can try any pictures you may have taken. Thank you in advance, any help is appreciated! Please feel ...

YS PTA Bylaws Notification
In June of this year the delegates at the National PTA Convention approved a vast number of revisions to the National PTA bylaws. Some of those changes are required to be incorporated into every constituent association’s bylaws (state, region, local and council) in order to remain in compliance with the Standards of Affiliation of National PTA.
NYS PTA has been working on making sure our bylaws reflect those changes in accordance with Article XXII-Amendments, Section 2, which states: The adoption of an amendment to any provision of the Bylaws of the National PTA and the New York State PTA shall serve automatically and without the requirement of further action by the constituent association to amend correspondingly the bylaws ...
