Content TBD.

Chair/Co-Chair Responsibilities

Assemble a team (and/or add co-chairs) to help you plan and execute this memorable event. The Sweetheart Dance, replaced the Daddy Daughter Dance in 2019, and was held on Friday, February 8, 2019 from 7-8:30pm for all Bushy Park families. The theme for 2019 was Tiaras & Crowns and featured nut-free refreshments (assorted desserts, a candy bar, vegetables, fruit, water bottles) crafts, a raffle, an acoustic musician, a DJ, a photo booth and official photos by Mrs. Ketterer. In order to offset the cost of the event, the chair obtained corporate sponsorships from local businesses. Sponsors were featured in pre-event emails, Facebook posts, event signage, program and post-event communications. The chair (and team) are responsible for creating and working with school staff to distribute event communications (Example: student and staff invitations, post-event survey, etc.) and collecting/processing registrations (Example: completing required PTA financial forms for delivery to PTA Treasurer). The chair (and team) are responsible for working with vendors (Example: negotiating vendor cost and working with PTA President for compliance).
