The Champaign PTA Council recently stepped into social media and can now be found on Facebook and Twitter:

From Vice President Sheri Williamson:
Yep. I’ve started working more on the Twitter account and the Facebook page. We’ll be using social media to aid us in promoting the different initiatives we’re working on such as parent workshops and student activity nights.…We hope to get more families following us on social media as we want to also use Facebook and Twitter to talk to parents about all sorts of things… changes they’d like to see, ideas they have, questions, etc. For instance, Dr. Wiegand has agreed to incorporate our idea for a town hall meeting into her Supper with the Superintendent events. We’ll post dates, times, locations for those events as we hear from Unit 4. Parents can then submit questions to via Twitter and Facebook that we can then pass along to Dr. Wiegand to be answered at her next Supper. Questions would be posted as a PTA question, not from any parent in particular. We hope that encourages parents to submit questions and concerns they have.Lots going on. And we would love to have district parents involved in all of it!
