PCCPTA committee positions will be filled by appointment later. The more people who express a willingness to serve, the better prepared we will be to provide the leadership, services and programs to meet the needs of our PTA community. To be most effective, Pinellas County Council PTA/PTSA leadership should be representative of all communities in the district.

Webinar: Talking with Teens About Stress Management
High school can be some of the best years of a student’s life- but it can also prove to be stressful. National PTA and The American Psychological Association partnered to highlight an important conversation for parents regarding teens and stress management. Dr. David Palmiter, board certified clinical psychologist, presents on the findings from the APA's 2013 Stress in America Survey and reviews strategies parents can use to help their teens manage stress levels and stay healthy.

Changing schools can be a time of excitement and anxiety. As children transition to new schools, your PTA can be a resource to parents looking to join a new PTA http://bit.ly/1J9ERdS

As soon as your elections are completed and before summer vacations begin, please submit your new and returning officers information. It is imperative that both PCCPTA and Florida PTA receive your officer information so that you receive important communications regarding summer training opportunities and information to get your new year off to a great start!
