📋 Feb 16th: Blair HS PTSA General Body/Membership Meeting


NOTE: If you missed the meeting here’s a meeting recap (via Twitter THREAD) as tweeted by Silver Chips Online, the Montgomery Blair High School’s Student Newspaper.


The next Montgomery Blair High School PTSA General Body/Membership meeting will be held virtually/online on Tuesday, February 16, 2021 from 6-8 pm.

The primary focus of the meeting will be to receive feedback from the school community, including students, on the proposed resolution on School Resource Officers (SROs) from the Montgomery County Council of PTAs (MCCPTA). Note: See weblinks below for background information.

Also, Mrs. Makeyda Soriano, Blair’s Resource Counselor will be providing Parent training for Signs of Suicide prevention. This will be an opportunity for parents to have a glimpse of what their students will be learning within their Sign of Suicide class lessons. Resources will be provided as we bring continued awareness to this topic for our students.

As always, PTSA and school news and information will be shared.
