The JSSPVA Wants You! 2015-16 Board Nominations Starting

The Nominating Committee is beginning the process of slating the JSSPVA Board for the 2015-16 School Year. The JSSPVA is the heart of the Sears Community, as its volunteers coordinate many of our most treasured Sears programs and traditions including:  Family Fun Day, Sears Cafe, Chess Club, the Benefit, Enrichment, Ability Awareness, etc. Are you interested in becoming more involved in your child's school? Do you have a suggestion of someone who has a special talent who might be just right for the PVA? The time is now! New Sears families are welcome and encouraged to learn more - we want to hear from you! A complete list of Board positions and descriptions can be found here. Please contact Nominating Chair, Angie Veber at aveber711@gmail.com or 847-644-7774 for more information.
