NEW!  Meeting ideas to draw attendance for Junior High/ Middle School PTA’s.  Start brainstorming how you will increase attendance at your meetings this year by reviewing these ideas and making them your own.  Click here for our Northwest Cook Region JH ideas.

Northwest Cook Region June Training was a huge success!  Nearly 140 PTA leaders from our region received training and resource information to plan for what could be an unusual start to the school year.  If you have suggestions for new topics you’d like information on feel free to email me at jharris@illinoispta.org.

Have a very special summer getting used to our new normal and watch for information on:

  • LAUNCH – our NWCR kick off meeting in early August
  • September PTA training schedule
  • Our Region Annual Meeting on October 5th – Save the Date!
