Career Day is Back (With Changes!)

Albany High School PTSA is hosting Career Fair Day on November 8th 11:30-12:30 (check-in at 11:00am in AHS main office, 603 Key Rte Blvd, Albany, CA 94706). We plan to have 50+ professionals from various industries share their experience/passion/advice with our students. All volunteers will be seated at the pre-assigned tables in a dedicated open space location (most likely the baseball field adjacent to AHS main building). The students will be given a floor plan and the volunteers' background summaries ahead of time, then the students will have the opportunity to move freely between the tables based on their interests/who they want to hear from first. There is going to be an opportunity to share your experience as well as answer students' questions. We also welcome themed hands on activities if any volunteers would like to prepare any. Please let us know ahead of time if you need help setting the activities up. We would love for you to come and inspire our students!!!

With love, your PTSA board.

PTSA Hosts Math@AHS Parent Circle This Wednesday

Please join us for our first Math@AHS Parent Circle. This Wednesday, 9/19 from 6:30-8:30p in Room 106.

About PTSA monthly Parent Circles:

AHS PTSA monthly parent circles provide a direct communication channel, a parent to a parent, and a parent to AHS staff leadership. We will meet once a month and share our experiences and thoughts about topics our AHS parents community cares most about. Our September parent circle is about Math@AHS. Please come, share, ask for advice, and hear about experiences of other families.

These monthly events are open to all the AHS families, you don't have to be a member to attend!

PTSA is Growing Fast; We Are So Thankful!

The AHS PTSA community reached 70 members this week! We are setting a new goal, 80 members by the next general meeting (taking place on October 2nd.) It is a wonderful feeling seeing our community growing every day ❤️🎉🎂🍰👍

If you haven't joined yet, you're in luck: We are looking for a parent interested in leading Grad Night organization. We work on every PTSA project together as a team, but need someone to collaborate with student leadership, and make all the important decisions. We have some ideas for a Grad Night that need to be vetted ASAP to ensure satisfaction and memorable moments for the graduating class. SOS!!!

With love,
your PTSA board
