The Journey Begins

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

None of us are certain what this school year will bring.  The Covid-19 pandemic has presented schools and PTAs with many challenges.  We thank you for having the courage to continue engaging families and advocating for all children. Please, bear with us as we work with Cobb County School District and Georgia PTA to develop a plan and get answers to your questions.

In the meantime, District 9 PTA has scheduled several MemberHub Zoom trainings to help you transition some of your PTA’s most important communications and transactions into the digital world. Please, check your email for more information and invitation links from D9.

Tom Mathis Sr. Council looks forward to working with you this year. Thank you for joining us on this wild journey!
