PFC Nominating Committee

Do you want to join the PFC Team?  We'd love to talk to you!

The spreadsheet below is a list of all the PFC positions for 2017-18, including people who are continuing their role from 2016-17 (white background), those who are taking on a new position (blue), and open roles (yellow). We still have some key positions to fill, without which, some of our favorite events may not happen.  Please read the descriptions below and consider how you can help...

                                                       Ice Cream Social 

The Ice Cream Social is on the calendar for Friday, September 1, and most of the details are planned and ready to go.  Our original host and her family moved away this summer so we just need someone to pick up where she left off.  She is still available to pass on all the information and answer questions.  Can you help us make this incredibly fun and popular event a huge success?

Do you and your kids LOVE the Carnival?  
We would hate for our kids miss out on our annual Fall Carnival, but we need a team of parents to make it happen. You and a few of your trusted friends can team up to take on the carnival.  You wouldn't be planning from scratch - some of the leaders of past carnivals are available to share their expertise and have made lots of notes including a timeline, vendors, a budget, and jobs that need to be filled on the day of the carnival. AND, we are open to trying something new like Going Green at the Carnival, or adding a Bike Safety activity to the event, or even a Climbing Wall (we have some good leads on all of these ideas).  This is a great event for a team wants to make it their own and is willing and able to do most of the work between now and the end of October.  But once it's over, it's over!
The tentative date of the 2017 Carnival is Sunday, October 22.

Book Fair
The Scholastic Book Fair is a long tradition at Walnut Acres, and it usually is scheduled in time to help us kick off the Annual Read-a-thon.  We need a small team (1-2 people), with a handful of helpers for the week of the fair, to coordinate with Scholastic and lead the effort. Our kids love this event and it benefits not only our students, but the classrooms and library, too.  This job requires some prep work during the month leading to the fair, and is rather labor intensive during the week of the fair, but parents are pretty generous about helping out during that week.  It can be as elaborate or as simple as you want to make it.
The tentative date of the 2017 Book Fair is the first or second week of November.

Are you a morning person?!  Do you walk to school and/or arrive early with your kids?  Do you like to open car doors and say Hello to parents and students?  We need a parent to take the lead on coordinating the Drive-Thru Volunteers who so graciously greet our families in the morning.  This year, we are considering having each grade level be responsible for Drive-Thru for a month (for example, 5th grade parents will provide coverage in August, 4th grade in September, etc...) Thus, the Drive-Thru Coordinator just needs to ensure that parents sign up for the shifts (ideally 4 parents per shift). This is a year long commitment (2 if you dare!) and we need the Drive-Thru to be covered Monday - Friday from 8:40 - 9:00 am.  Fridays are generally "Father Fridays" and the dads take the lead at the Drive-Thru!

If any of these positions sound like something you (or a group of friends) would like to take on, let us know asap. The new PFC Board and next year's annual budget will be voted on tomorrow so it would be great to be able to add you to our slate. If you want more information about a specific role, email or talk to any PFC Exec Board Member

What is Nominating?
Nominating is the process by which we fill our PFC Board each year.  The Board includes Committee Chairs who lead all of our PFC sponsored fundraisers and activities.  Very little would happen on behalf of the PFC at our school without these volunteers.  Committee chair descriptions can be found here.
