All parents are welcome to join us Thursday, September 20th at 8:40 am in Room 6 for our next general PTA Meeting. We will be VOTING on whether or not to approve our revised bylaws. We will also be VOTING on whether the Franklin PTA will support Measure SMS, which will be presented to Santa Monica residents on the November 6th ballot and proposes to (through the issuance of $485 million of bonds) improve, repair, and modernize outdated Santa Monica classrooms, etc, and improve school safety systems. If the general membership votes to take a support position, we will then be VOTING on whether to approve a one-time expense of $5000 in order to financially assist the Measure SMS Campaign.
Jon Kean, Vice President of our school district’s Board of Education, and Jennifer Smith, Executive Vice President of the Santa Monica-Malibu PTA Council, will be guests at this meeting in order to provide answers to any questions members may have about Measure SMS.
Only those who have been paid members of the Franklin PTA since August 21st can vote at this meeting. If you have not yet done so, please be sure to purchase your PTA Membership HERE in order to vote at subsequent meetings. Your voice is important!
