1 September 2021
Dear Gelinas Families,
Hello and Welcome back from the Gelinas PTSA Executive Board! We hope you had a wonderful summer and are ready for this exciting year ahead.
We hope you will join us at our monthly meetings, which alternate between mornings and evenings. You’ll hear about upcoming events and have an opportunity to speak directly with the Principals and members of the Board of Education. You can bring your questions and concerns to the meetings, or reach out to one of us in advance and we’ll make sure to get you answers.
We strongly encourage you to attend our first meeting if you are new to the building.
The full schedule of this year’s Tuesday meetings will be as follows:
9/14 9:30am including New Parent Reception
10/12 at 7pm
11/16 at 9:30am

At the secondary level, fundraising for the PTSA is done primarily through membership and the school store. Our goal is 100% membership from both Families and Staff. We hope you will join us by filling out the form under the Membership Tab on the PTSA website or at https://gelinasptsa.com/membership and sending it along with a $20 check made out to “PJ Gelinas JHS PTSA.” You can send it in by backpack to the Main Office or by mail to Gelinas PTSA, 25 Mud Road, Setauket, NY 11733. You can also join through Memberhub: https://gelinas.memberhub.com By joining, you will be added to the email distribution list so we can keep you up to date on what’s happening at school even when you miss a meeting. Additionally, as a member, you will have the opportunity to volunteer at the School Store (open to students daily during all three lunch periods) and at our other events.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to any of us with questions or concerns. We wish you and your family good health and happiness this year and always.

Information regarding Gelinas PTA board elections:
The nominating committee has formed and will consist of Shamma Murphy, Guimei Wang and Denise Alfano. All of the positions on the Gelinas PTSA Board are open each year for election, even if a person has only completed one year in the position. Each person may only hold the same position for 2 consecutive one- year terms. They may cycle back to a position after at least 1 year in a different position. The Board Positions are as follows: President: Vice President: Recording Secretary: Corresponding Secretary: Treasurer: Currently, all positions have at least one person interested in them - except recording secretary, but additional candidates are welcome for consideration. If only one candidate is presented, voting will happen by voice vote, if more than one candidate elects to be placed on the ballot, an in-person ballot vote will be required. Anyone interested in any of the above positions should send a message of interest to Shamma Murphy (email@example.com), no later than May 12th. The nominating committee will meet after that date to consider all interested parties and present a slate of recommended candidates. If there are additional candidates who would like to be placed on the ballot to challenge the nominating committee's recommendation, they are welcome to do so but are required to let the Nominating Committee know at least two days ahead of the scheduled vote meeting. We are waiting on the exact Date/Time of that meeting pending space availability but it will be on or around June 13th.
