The PTA eNews Team gathers information from the MRES community and compiles a weekly electronic newsletter. The newsletter is sent via email at the beginning of each week to all Marshall Road parents, staff and administration who’ve expressed an interest in receiving electronic news updates. All submissions for eNews should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by close of business each Wednesday. All items approved for the Tuesday Folders are automatically ready for publication on eNews or website!
Design and publish information to the website: send all event information by Wednesday close of business to email@example.com. Solicitations not endorsed by the PTA are not included on the PTA website.
