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.
