Newsletter Checklist

The PTA newsletter comes out the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month. All submissions are due by noon the Sunday prior. Submissions should be sent to Kimberly Nelson ( and Kimie Carrol ( in the following format:

1. Submit your blurb “ready to go” in a word document. It should include the following details (as applicable) : WHAT is the event or news item, WHEN and WHERE is it happening,
WHY – the purpose of the event, WHO is having it and WHO should the reader contact if they want more information or want to volunteer. Plus any other details needed to make it clear.

2. Keep it short. We are shooting for a one-page newsletter to maximize readability for our parents and community members.

3. Include pictures – we LOVE those!

4. Submit by the deadline. Sunday is the day the newsletter is put together and is sent to the executive committee for approval.

5. Clearly state in the subject line that this is for the newsletter and the date it comes out i.e.: Newsletter 01/09/14
