We Can’t Do It Alone

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
-Helen Keller

Right now, your mind is probably on the countdown to your beach trip, or just the blessed days of skipping the school day rush. MCHS PTSA does wish everyone a safe and relaxing Spring Break, but we also hope you will take just a little time to think about next year.
So many of us volunteer in ways big and small in our school and community. Please consider putting some of your volunteer power to work with MCHS PTSA.  Don’t wait for someone else to take the lead. We need you.

Leadership Positions for Students

Parent Teacher Student Association

As you know, MCHS PTSA is currently recruiting the next round of leaders for 2017/18. Did you know that STUDENTS can serve in some of our key positions? Dedicated, hard-working, responsible students committed to academic achievement should consider the possibilities of taking a leadership position with us. Think of the possibilities involved if a parent and student were to volunteer for our leadership team together…
MCHS PTSA offers real-life experience in the management of a volunteer organization. Fundraising, budgeting, event planning, volunteer recruitment and coordination are just some of the skills practiced as a chairperson or board member of MCHS PTSA.
Students seriously interested and able to commit to a full year of service for 2017/18 should contact Carman Webb at cgwebb@me.com

Supporting Your Child Through High School

BeFunky_Teen-boy-hug-mom

Being a parent of teenagers is certainly an interesting job, isn’t it? As our teens move through their high school years, it can become an increasingly difficult job to navigate how to support your child through the maze of high school opportunities and challenges.  How do you stay connected to your child as they move through this passage to adulthood? We have an opportunity for your consideration.

Volunteering for the Middle Creek PTSA is an opportunity to connect with your child’s high school, regardless of what clubs or activities your child might be doing at school.  It’s an opportunity to get to know the faculty and staff and to support student achievement.  Ultimately, it’s a way for you to feel a strong connection to what’s happening in the life of your student from his first day of high school all the way until Graduation.

The Middle Creek PTSA is a group of parents, teachers, students, and administrators that work together to support the success of all students.  We work together as volunteers to support the student body at Middle Creek High School, across Wake County and the state of NC, and even across the nation.  We work on things like student recognition, staff appreciation, support for classroom teachers, support of the arts, communications between the school and the parents, support for freshmen orientation and senior activities, and much more.
The Nominating Committee is currently seeking folks with an interest in serving in any role with the Middle Creek PTSA for 2017-2018.  We promise that having a conversation with us doesn’t mean you’re putting your name into an abyss of time-sucking volunteer work.  Rather, it’s a chance for you to explore how you can make that connection discussed above.  Please consider if you have a few hours to give, regardless of whether it’s just a couple of hours over the course of the year or something more significant.  We have a place for you.

Here at MCHS, we are in need of willing parents who value our mission as the Academic Booster Club. Without you, we cannot continue. There are a variety of positions available next year. For example:

PTSA Secretary

This impactful voting board position involves coming to one meeting a month with school administrators and PTSA members. For the past several years meetings have been held on the 3rd Monday of the month from 6:00-7:00 pm. during the school year.

During the meeting the secretary is responsible for recording the names of those in attendance and composing the minutes of the meeting.  Additional optional opportunities involve being a part of Freshman Orientation and Meet the Teacher nights, the Winter Wonders Craft Fair, and Teacher Appreciation events.

Approximate time commitment: 1.5 hours per month. No previous secretarial experience needed.

For information about this or any of our opportunities, please contact Sue Scarlett jocdoc1@juno.com

Be Part of the Largest Art Projects MCHS Has Ever Seen

Building-Dreams

The Art Department and many, many students, have been working with artist Carter Hubbard to design large art projects that will be displayed in Middle Creek High’s foyer. Now the students need your help. Yes. You the parents. You the community. By filling out two simple surveys, you will fuel the energy needed to make these project come alive. It’s your chance to be part of MCHS history.

The students created a three and a half minute video to introduce the art projects and why your responses are so important. The video can be seen by tapping the image above or by going here at YouTube.

The links to the surveys can be found by visiting the links below
