PPG Community Events Update

By Dr. Jessica Xu

It is only one month until the November elections.  This is the first time the PUSD trustees will be elected by district instead of at large.  Eight candidates are running for three PUSD trustee seats in three districts.  PPG has posted relevant information of 2018 PUSD trustee election on its Facebook page.  PPG encourages all parents to learn more about crucial issues facing PUSD and positions of each candidate to become an informed voter in November.  Don’t forget to LIKE US on Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/PUSDParentsGroup/ ).

PPG is calling for more volunteers!  PPG relies 100% on parent volunteers.  Most of us are working parents with hectic schedules.  However, if you care about major district decisions that affect every student in PUSD, please join us!  We are seeking five more volunteers with experienced leadership skills to join our executive team: VP of Community Outreach, VP of Fundraising, VP of Legal Affairs, Project Lead for Public Oversight of PUSD Financials, and Project Lead for Supporting Spanish Initiative.  If interested, please email info@pusdparents.org.  Please include relevant experience, your goals for the position and mark the subject line accordingly.
