I hope everyone enjoyed their four-day week-end! And I hope that your first 10 days of school have gone as smoothly as can be! I am definitely grateful to have our students back in the building and I am hopeful about what the year could bring. Yet, I have to be honest, the frenzy of the beginning of a school year has me dragging a bit. It is hard not to become both excited and overwhelmed - wanting to take leaps and bounds forward - but steady does win races (notice, I left out the “slow” part of that:). Our efforts to help the Justice High School PTSA be more relevant and engaging in our community are a work-in-progress. Those are the buzz words, the goals, of the year: relevance and engagement. In order to achieve our goals we really do need your help - we need your input and your time. Admittedly, this whole “President of the PTSA” thing is also a work-in-progress for me and I really need to elevate my delegation game, but in order to do that we need more volunteers, please read our “wish list” below.


I would like to again THANK all of the folks who have volunteered their time thus far: handling school supply deliveries; at the Wolfpack Welcome table; feeding kids for Senior Sunrise; and those who have been in the background providing a sounding-board! I would also like to especially THANK those persons who have so far stepped-up to take on a role:


James Wilkins (Parent) - Communications Co-Coordinator

Ann-Marie Ward (Parent) - Communications Co-Coordinator

Jenna White (Parent) - Advocacy Coordinator

Laura Coates (Parent) -  Membership (Volunteer) Coordinator

Paola Vasquez-Brown (Parent) - Senior Caravan and Carnival

Kim Wilkins (Parent) – Trivia Night Coordinator

Wint Ngon (Student) - VP Events

Justin Tetelman (Student) - VP Student Involvement

Omar Mohamed (Parent) – Treasurer

Kathleen Brown (Parent) – Secretary


Believe me, I know time and energy are in short supply, but I am hopeful that you will find a way to support these volunteers in some capacity at some point this year. I welcome (aka beg:) you to join us: one-time/one-off volunteers, single-project managers, or position-holders are ALL welcome!


We have been working on our communication – which includes these new bi-weekly newsletters being distributed via News You Choose (we said good-bye to members-only news), a new Instagram account, an in-mid-update revised website, and a developing WhatsApp organization account. We’re trying to stay connected to you – so please share our FB/Instagram/Twitter posts (see links below) and newsletters as widely as possible. (Note: we will be attempting to go “live” on FaceBook and/or Instagram for events when possible (for viewing only), including for our first member meeting.


Please join us for our re-scheduled Monthly Member Meeting TONIGHT in the Little Theater or online (link here)!

Global Calendar. We are working on a one-stop Google calendar having dates for PTSA events, Justice academics and activities, and important pyramid-school events.

Fundraising Committee. Come help us brainstorm and plan new fundraising activities, including, but not limited to a: trivia night; casino night; talent showcase; spring field day; and Senior caravan and carnival.

Member Meetings. We have 8 monthly member meetings left this year and we have a list of presentations/Q&As that are our goals for each meeting (not necessarily appearing in the order below), please email us if you have a suggestion:

  6. What is a PTA?

PTSA Listening Tour. We heard you and we will be continuing our efforts to come into neighborhoods and have dialogues. In order to streamline our time (let’s face it, no one wants to go to more meetings than they have to) and make it more convenient for people to attend, we are combining this with our monthly membership meetings. The sessions will begin at 6pm prior to the start of the 7pm member meetings (the videos will also be posted online) and our meeting will alternate locations (including, but not limited to: Glasgow; each of the pyramid elementary schools; apartment complex meeting rooms; the public library; parks, etc.). Please email us if you would like to suggest a location or host/plan one of the meetings.



Please donate new (or gently used) back-packs for our students! Drop-off in the front-office or when you see a PTSA table at a home game.

ALL are welcome to participate in our programs and events, receive our news and information, volunteer time or resources, and attend and contribute during general membership meetings! However, there is one members-only privilege: voting – having a voice in decisions about our programming, events, and spending. The National and Virginia PTA provide supportive resources (see below for examples) and your membership fees support those efforts as well as our local efforts (we need a basic level of financial support to have such things as virtual meetings, digital workspaces, online bookkeeping, etc. and additional funds for any other programming we elect to have).

Soon, at the link above, you will also see options to sponsor memberships so fellow wolves can join the PTSA-pack and to register for a free membership if you need one.


We welcome your input. Please click above to provide us comments, questions, and suggestions.
