2016-2017 PTO updates

Hello, Southland parents!  This year got started quickly and we are moving in a great direction!  We just got our Jog-a-Thon total - $39,702.92!!!!!   Our students to such great work to raise money for their school.  ALL of these funds will go to fund programs and activities for our students.  Awesome!!

We also need to do a little bit of housekeeping.  Every two years, our PTO bylaws must be updated.  We will have a vote for approval on our bylaws at our next meeting (Mon, Oct 3).  Please take a look at the bylaws so you can be more familiar with how our PTO operates.
