The Communications Team Needs your help!

The PTSA Communications team has two volunteer openings for the 2022-2023 school year.

We seek a VP for Communications, who oversees the work of the volunteers who assemble the weekly Charger Chatter newsletter, the PTSA website, the Facebook page, and and maintains the online student directory. Time commitment is approximately 2 hours/week. Technical knowledge is not required!

Second, we seek one or more volunteer newsletter editors to assemble the weekly newsletter from news posts on the Cherry Crest PTSA website. The newsletter editor collaborates closely with the PTSA webmasters, ensuring recent news postings are presented in the newsletter as effectively as possible. Preparing the newsletter takes 1-2 hours on the weekend. The skills needed to produce the newsletter from our WordPress website are easy to pick up, so no prior skillset is required.

If you are interested in joining this motivated team of volunteers, please contact VP.1@cherrycrest-ptsa.org.
