The Grady PTA Nominating Committee is seeking a Yearbook Coordinator for next year.  The Yearbook Coordinator works with our yearbook vendor, Strawbridge, to supply pictures and content for the yearbook.  There are already several volunteers who have agreed to take pictures at school events next year, so you will have help if you decide to take on this role.  If you are interested, please contact our current Yearbook Coordinator (and Nominating Committee member), Norma Maiz at [email protected]

Additionally, Grady PTA still has some open board positions available, including VP of Fundraising, VP of Membership and VP of Sponsorship.  If you are interested in being more involved, but aren’t yet ready to commit to a board position, please contact Debbie Bresnahan at [email protected].
