Congratulations to Adobe Acres & Double Eagle PTAs!
On February 28 any PTA that was in compliance was entered into a drawing for $200! Double Eagle PTA was the lucky winner! Also, in February, any compliant unit that submitted five new members was entered into a drawing for free Extra Value Meals from McDonald’s for their Board of Directors.

Attention PTA Officers
2017-2018 Officer Lists Due
Updated officer lists for the 2017-2018 school year should be emailed to the New Mexico PTA office as soon as possible. This allows us to maintain communications with your PTA as you transition to the new school year. It’s fine to send us a list that does not have all officer positions filled yet. You may turn in additional contact information later. You should turn this list in each year. Don’t put this important step off and miss out on information your PTA needs for next year! Print off the list on this email, scan and send the list to firstname.lastname@example.org or go to www.newmexicopta.org – members only section – fill in the form and email it. Don’t delay!
