The J. Taylor Finley Middle School PTA is seeking new members for the 2016/17 school year. The group’s membership drive will continue through the fall until its ranks are filled. A determined effort is underway to register all teachers and as many parents as is possible.

Finley PTA membership costs $9 per year and is open to parents, grandparents, neighbors, community members and friends. Members are not required to attend meetings or volunteer for any activities. Of course, they are welcome to do those things, if they choose. Membership dollars support programs for all students.

This year’s Finley PTA is led by Michele Deegan (co-president), Valerie Kellogg (co-president), Dana Forte (co-vice president), Denise Murtagh (co-vice president), Lisa Santa-Maria (recording secretary), Rene Babich Dumas (corresponding secretary), Kari Pitti (treasurer), and PTA Council delegates Ellen Dash and Amy Girimonti.

Joining the Finley PTA is easy and can be accomplished in many different ways. A check payable to Finley PTA in the amount of $10 per family member and $8 per additional member should be accompanied by the member’s name, address, phone number and e-mail address and can be sent into school with students, dropped off at the main office during school hours, submitted at any Finley PTA meeting or mailed to the Finley PTA at 20 Greenlawn Road, Huntington, New York 11743.

Your membership also strengthens the bond between the school and family. We encourage moms, dads, grandparents, guardians and neighbors to join.”
