Join the PTA board for 2018-2019!
Interested in getting a little more involved at Diamond, meeting new people, and helping the PTA? We’re looking for some new board members and committee chairs for next year! Most jobs don’t take very much time, and many are easily done by people who work outside the home. The board meets monthly, and we like to think we have a good time.
The positions we currently have available are below. If you'd like more information about any of the positions, or there’s something you’re interested in and you don’t see it on the list, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
- VP Hospitality (2) - provide support and some planning for parent coffees, staff luncheons, and staff appreciation week
- VP Social (2) - coordinate one or two parent social events
- Co-VP, Directory and Donations
- 6th, 7th, and 8th grade rep(s) - help plan grade level activities for students and families
- SHAC Liaison
- SEPAC/SEPTA Liaison
- School Committee Liaison
- Planning Board Liaison
- Community Coalition Liaison
** the liaison positions are great for people who are already going to those meetings, or who have an interest in what's happening on those committees; you'd report back to the PTA on anything relevant that's happening or being discussed. Many meetings are televised, so don't need to be attended in person.
Also, The Diamond PTA is seeking representatives to serve on a committee to explore how the the PTA can better integrate our Boston-based students and families within our Diamond community. As many of you likely recall, the elementary schools have the Family Friends program which essentially ends when the students leave their respective elementary schools, with nothing to replace it as they move on to middle and then high school. The PTA is hoping to develop an age-/developmentally-appropriate corollary to Family Friends at the middle school level with input from parent representatives from both Lexington-based and Boston-based families. If interested, please let us know.
