Training: Effective Budgets & Financial Strategies

Training: Effective Budgets & Financial Strategies

Kent Area PTSA Council is hosting an “Effective Budgets & Financial Strategies” presentation on next Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m. For those who still need to meet that training requirement for this year, this would be a great opportunity to do so. The timing is perfect for this presentation as our local PTA’s should be thinking about working on their budgets for the coming year so they can be approved at an upcoming general membership meeting.

Presentation – Effective Budgets & Financial Strategies

Location – Neely O’Brien Elementary School

Address – 6300 S. 236th St., Kent, WA

Date – March 23, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.

RSVP to Juliet Perry at president@kacpta.org

Cinderella Project Donations

Cinderella Project Donations

The Cinderella Project is always accepting donations of new and gently used formal and semi-formal attire.  We served a record number of students this fall for Homecoming and would like to make sure our racks are well stocked for Prom season.  If your student has a dress, tux or suit that they won’t wear again or doesn’t fit, please consider donating it.  Donations may be left at the main office of any high school or the Kent Phoenix Academy.  If you have any questions, please contact cinderellaproject@kacpta.org
