The Tuckahoe PTA is helping to get the word out about the School Budget vote & Capital Bond Project vote that’s taking place on Tuesday, May 18th, and we could use some help from H.S. students reminding community members to get to the polls. Community Service hours are being offered! Adults are welcome, too. Volunteers are asked to make phone calls to a list of registered voters using a script provided by the PTA.* A Zoom meeting will be set up on Sunday 5/16 to go over a script to be read on the phone calls.Continue reading “Parent and High School Student Volunteers Needed!”
