Last night was the first PTA meeting of the school year. As a 'new member' I figured it was a good idea to attend.
All in all...it was rather, um, lame.
Nothing really happened. Nothing that important was discussed.
For the most part, the only people talking were the members of the PTA board. And the principal. Oh, and "that" mom - you know, the one who just HAS to say something about every little thing?
Yeah, she was there too. [And no, it wasn't me]. This mom volunteered for the first committee mentioned, she complained about papers sent home from school and how her kids just shove them into their bags (yeah, not sure how that is a PTA issue, but whatever), and she threw out little comments every time someone said something.
So basically we're building a new gym, having a fundraiser on Friday, collecting box tops and soup labels and well, that's about it.
