NEC-S Area Planning Meeting – June 26, 2017

The Montgomery County Council of PTAs (MCCPTA) hosts a series of summer meetings for all county clusters. Our cluster, the Northeast Consortium-Sherwood (NEC-S), rallied together on Monday, June 26, at The Greene Turtle in Burtonsville. Our PTSA President-Elect, Neal Hawkins (front left), and Secretary-Elect, Condon Daniel (right, in white), were eager to hit the ground running as 2 of our newest officers. They participated in discussions about the Capital Improvements Program (CIP) that determines how our schools are assessed for renovations and expansions. Your Drew PTSA has been advocating for HVAC repairs/updates, an electric wiring modernization to support modern technology, and a security monitoring system.

NEC/Sherwood Area Meeting – October 5

On Wednesday, October 5, your Drew PTA president participated in an area meeting with our cluster school representatives.  We discussed our priorities for the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) to present at the CIP testimony workshop with the Board of Education on November 2 (time and location TBD).

During the meeting, attendees were given 4 green stickers to affix to poster boards with issues affecting our school.  Drew’s top 4 from their list are HVAC repair/replacement, classroom additions, security systems, and cafeteria/auditorium renovation.

Our cluster leaders will choose the most popular issues to highlight at the workshop.
