Thank you to all who attended our meeting last night! We worked through a lot of business, and then had a fantastic presentation from Beth Felsen on “Transition to Adulthood – It’s Never too Early to Start!” Her practical tips for building independence, self-advocacy, and emotional regulation skills (and more) in children of all ages were very helpful! If you weren’t able to attend last night, please keep an eye on our YouTube Channel – we will post the recording of the meeting & presentation there as soon as possible.

As part of our PTA business last night, SEPTA’s membership considered 3 critical motions:

  • The adoption of our 21-22 Financial Review
  • The adoption of the proposed 2022-2023 budget
  • The adoption of the proposed 2022-2023 Advocacy Priorities Statement

We did have more than quorum (10 members) present, and each motion passed. You can find our 2022-2023 Budget under “Resources>SEPTA Documents” on our website, and the 2022-2023 Advocacy Priorities under “Advocacy>SEPTA Official Position Statements”. Per Virginia PTA Bylaws, our financial review was submitted by August 1, and last night’s vote to accept the review completes our annual compliance requirements.

Thank you, again, to all who attended! Please take a look at these upcoming events:

  • Save the Date: October 15th – SEPTA Playground Picnic
  • Save the Date: November 15th – SEPTA General Membership Meeting & Bullying & Harassment of Students with Disabilities, 7pm (Virtual Meeting & Event)
