Open Leadership Roles Descriptions

The following roles are currently unfilled for the 2017-2018 school year, and without a volunteer to take them on, these programs are in danger of not happening and/or not reaching their full potential.  If you are interested in learning more about any of these roles, please contact Kelly Coleman (kelly.e.coleman@gmail.com):

FILLED! 6th Grade Parent Lead(s): We are looking for 6th Grade Parents who will help teachers & PTA organize activities and events that are special to the 6th Grade, e.g. preparing & organizing for Walker Creek, last week of school activities, etc.

6th Grade Promotion Lead(s): We are looking for 5th Grade Parents who will “pay it forward” by planning, prepping & gathering a team to work the 6th Grade Promotion Celebration on the last day of school, so the 6th Grade Parents can participate and enjoy the day.

FILLED! PTA Classroom Representatives Lead: This person will help to identify one-or-more parents in each classroom to be a Classroom Representative to benefit both PTA & the Teacher.  Some duties of the Classroom Reps include: communicating updates and reminders about MME, acting as liaison between the PTA/parents/teachers, assisting your teacher with a classroom art donation to the MME annual auction, coordinating class gifts for your teacher as desired – traditionally before winter break and before the end of the school year, encouraging participation in teacher appreciation week (May 7-11, 2018), helping to coordinate volunteers/supplies for classroom projects & special activities, etc.

Running Club Lead: This person will manage the overall effort for Running Club (usually Tuesdays & Thursdays for 45-minutes right after school), while the day-to-day operations will be handled by 2 Bridge Tutors.  You will meet with the Bridge Leaders to kick-off the year & answer questions, provide guidance, help plan/execute the end-of-year celebration, manage the supply of Otter Pops & other prizes, provide newsletter input & celebrations.  There is a budget associated with this program.

FILLED! Teacher/Staff Appreciation Chair: This person will lead the efforts around teacher & staff appreciation.  It can be as big…or as little…as you want to put into it.  There is an official Teacher Appreciation Week (May 7-11, 2018) where a more targeted set of activities can be planned & communicated, and you could expand to include the many “national appreciation days” throughout the year (National School Nurse Day, National School Custodian Day, etc.), birthdays, holiday, etc.  There is a budget associated with this program.

Missoula Children’s Theatre Lead: This person will lead all efforts for the fantastic week of February 5 – 10, 2018.  There is some prep work before the team arrives in Davis, and a fair amount of work during the residency week.  The previous leaders of this program have put together great transition materials including timelines, checklists, etc. There is a budget associated with this program.

FILLED! Mustang Run Assistant: This person will assist the Lead (Kelly Coleman) during the 2 week residency of the Fun Run Team October 16 – 27, 2017, with duties such as organizing and distributing prizes, gathering pledge $, helping resident athlete, providing newsletter input, being present on Fun Run Day (October 27), etc.

FILLED! Raffle Lead: This person will lead the annual raffle efforts associated with the Auction.  This person will secure the 1st, 2nd, 3rd place prizes, create the tickets, bundle & distribute tickets to each student, track/handle returned tickets & money, advertise & promote this fundraiser, manage raffle activities (including the drawing) at the Auction. The previous leaders of this program have put together great transition materials including timelines, checklists, etc.

FILLED! Hospitality – End-of-Year Teacher & Staff Appreciation Luncheon in June: This person will plan & execute the food, decorations, and invitations for the final teacher/staff appreciation for the year.  This event will be on Wednesday, June 6, 2017 in the MPR and there is a budget associated with this program.

FILLED! Hospitality – Math & Literacy Night Snack Leads: Kelly Coleman will purchase all food & provide needed supplies, so we just need one-person-per-event to set-up and manage the snack table in the MPR for each of the scheduled events:

  • Literacy Nights: Thurs Oct 12, Thurs Jan 18, Thurs May 3
  • Math Nights: Wed Nov 8, Thurs Feb 15, Thurs Apr 26

VP of Fundraising: This is an Executive Board Position with the following good news: all the major fundraisers for the year have leaders (except Mustang Run – see above), so this job would be one of coordination & help to those leaders, plus handling any “opportunistic” fundraisers that come our way that you decide would be good for our school.  The best case scenario is that someone takes this on with an eye to doing it again next year, and begins to create an overall annual plan for fundraising for the MME PTA.
