PFA seeking volunteer leadership for the 2011-12 school year

Send by email
Family involvement and communication are critical to the overall success of the school

All parents and guardians interested in a leadership position with the PFA can put their names forward. Go ahead, nominate yourself! Serving in a leadership capacity with the PFA is a great way to get to know fellow parents, work with the faculty, and feel connected to Catlin Gabel.

The PFA welcomes parents who are new to the school and parents who have not considered leadership involvement before. We also value experience and try to put together class teams of parents who are new to volunteering at the school and those with prior experience. Generally, we recommend starting out by volunteering as a grade representative before serving on the executive council. Nominating yourself is strongly encouraged.

Please e-mail pfa@catlin.edu to nominate a candidate (including yourself) for any of the following positions

  • Grade representatives (preschool through twelfth)

Executive Council

  • Volunteer coordinator
  • Spring Festival coordinator
  • Advisor to council
  • Beginning School coordinator
  • Lower School coordinator
  • Middle School coordinator
  • Upper School coordinator
  • Treasurer
  • Vice president

Nominations will be accepted until April 15. The PFA nominating committee – PFA president, advisor, vice-president, and two parents from the community – will review the applications and generate a slate of officers for the executive council. The executive council election takes place at the May general meeting, Thursday, May 19, at 8:30 a.m. in Gerlinger Multimedia Auditorium. All nominees for executive council and grade reps will be contacted by May 1.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact anyone on the current PFA council, or e-mail pfa@catlin.edu
