Do you have news to share with the Cluster community? Submit your news through this form for consideration in our weekly newsletter. Any related photos are greatly appreciated!
[Note: PTA volunteers maintain the Cluster website, listservs, social media outlets, advertising, article-writing and promotions on behalf of the Cluster. Contact the PTA Communications Co-Chairs if you have Communications Skills to contribute to your child's school.]
Join a Campus Listserv so you can ask questions, or see what’s going on at your child’s current or future campus. Each school has its own listserv maintained by the PTA, where parents, teachers, and administrators can share information or post questions relevant to a specific campus.
All members of the school community are encouraged to post items of interest, event information, or ask questions or seek advice. Please note: the listserv is not a complaint department. We ask that you post with kindness and respect and adhere to the listserv guidelines

Ways To Get Involved With the Cluster
