My parent group has had 3 meetings this year- August, November, and January. I’m going to have one more in May. During Open House I provided parents with first semester dates including our first parent meeting and invited them all to attend. My first meeting was the most highly attended, but I do have a solid core group I can count on. At our first meeting I presented the music program budget for the year and we brainstormed/planned fundraisers for the year. I also gave them an overview of the music program. I don’t have any officers at this time. I may add officers in the future as my parent group gets more established. We also don’t have any bi-laws or a handbook yet. Basically I run the meetings and oversee all activities. I do form committees to help organize and run particular fundraising events. In between meetings and as we plan upcoming events, I send out email updates to my parent group and make phone contacts when needed. Let me know how it goes!
