Commerce Elementary PTA

Advocacy Information

Advocacy is at the core of PTA activity – at the school, state level and at the national level. Here are some links and information to keep you connected.

Commerce Elementary PTA Legislative Representative:

Erin Kelly


Walled lake Board of Education:

The Walled Lake Consolidated Schools Board of Education is a seven-member elected board that volunteers countless hours to serve Oakland County’s largest school district with 19 schools.

The board members are not employees of the district. Each of the seven members serves a four-year term. The community elects Board of Education members each June in the annual school election.

The board meets monthly on the first Thursday of each month at the Educational Services Center, 850 Ladd Rd., Building D, Walled Lake.

The purpose of the board is to create policies that are in line with state and federal laws and the district’s mission, to demonstrate fiscal responsibility and adopt a balanced budget annually, and to hire and evaluate the superintendent of schools.

Michigan PTA Advocacy:

From universal kindergarten to a juvenile justice system – National PTA advocates have been at the heart of our nation’s greatest advances for youth.  Michigan PTA advocates ensure that parent’s voices are heard and that issues related to the health, education and well-being of all children do not go unnoticed. It is our goal to empower and encourage parents to speak to their legislators and the community on behalf of their children. For more Michigan PTA advocacy information click here.

National PTA Advocacy:

One of our great PTA fundraisers throughout the year is Bagel Days! Below is a schedule of the days bagels will be distributed along with some frequently asked questions.

September 27
October 18
November 29
December 6
January 24
February 28
March 28
April 18
May 30
June 6

1. What if my child isn't there for bagel day? Their bagel will be saved and given to them the next time they are there. Unfortunately we don't have a way to keep it fresh for too long and we apologize in advance about that.

2. Do these come with cream cheese? No.

3. Are these nut free? As we get these bagels from a third party (Detroit Bagel), we cannot guarantee they don't come in contact with nuts.

4. What time will my child receive their bagel? Bagels are delivered and distributed to classrooms in the morning but we are unable to guarantee a specific time each classroom will receive their bagels or what time teachers will pass them out. We suggest having bagels be an extra snack rather than counting on them being the only snack of the day.

You have until 9/14 to sign up for this year's Bagel Days. All bagel days must be prepaid for the year. Visit our website at www.commerceelementarypta.com/pta-membership to sign up. If you have additional questions, let us know!
