General Membership Meeting

Put it on your calendar, THIS is the year to attend a PTA General Membership Meeting. You can be a part of the action, get your questions answered and support your school all from the comfort of your own home. This year the meeting will be on Thursday, October 8th from 7-8pm. There will be some brief business followed by a Q & A with Mr. Perlberg and Dr. Giles. 

Zoom links will be sent to all PTA Members closer to the date.

Make sure you join the PTA for only $8 to receive the link and participate in this meeting! Have questions or not sure if you've joined? Contact Jamie Swaine

Don't forget each year you have to relink your VIC card and your Lowes Rewards card to Margaret Pollard Middle School. Just ask them the next time you check-out and they'll hook you up! You can also click on the links above to find out more information about these programs.

Don't forget about the Thrift Shop!

We are currently booking PTA Thrift Shop work sessions for September and October at the Cole Park store.
If you’ve volunteered at a work session in the past, please know they will look a little different moving forward while COVID precautions are in effect.  Here’s what you need to know:
  • No more than 6 volunteers + 1 supervisor in the store at one time.
  • Masks must be worn.
  • Volunteers must use hand sanitizer (provided by supervisor) prior to entering store.
  • A supervisor will ask each volunteer a few health-related questions before entering the store, and all answers must be “no.”
  • Hands must be sanitized again upon exiting the store.
Volunteers will continue to help straighten the store for business the next day, and sessions will be held Monday – Friday in the evenings or Sundays from 2 – 4 p.m.
If you and your family, or a group of friends comfortable working together, would like to arrange a session and start earning hours for a club, teacher or team, please contact Cate House, Pollard PTA Thrift Shop Coordinator, she will then coordinate with you and a supervisor to secure a date. 

School Board to Meet 

The Chatham County Board of Education met last Thursday evening and received updates from subject-matter experts about what school may look like for our students after the first nine weeks. Board members are carefully considering the safest option for students, staff and families. The board will meet at 5:30 p.m. on September 23 at Horton Middle School to discuss this more. Chatham County Schools will update you on Thursday, September 24 with any announced changes.
