West Shore PTA will be taking part in “adopting” a polling location on Election Day. This partnership with the Brevard County Elections Office encourages civic participation in the election process while raising much needed funds for our campus. Volunteers will serve as poll workers donating their monetary earnings to the West Shore PTA. In addition to raising funds for the school, volunteer poll workers will also be allowed to count the hours worked as parent involvement service hours.
For more information please contact West Shore PTA's Adopt-A-Precinct Committee Chair, Veronica Giguere
