Dear Sheehan Families,

A to Z Connect - Important Update - ACTION REQUIRED
The Sheehan School PTA uses A to Z Connect as our membership platform.
We recently were notified that their system was upgraded and all families will need to create a new account. The old system should no longer be used. Please log into the new system to confirm your information. Returning users can use the previous username/password. New users, please create a new account. Only one account per family is needed. This website is where families will pay PTA dues, purchase items such as apparel for the annual school apparel sale, and tickets to the fall social. We also hope to utilize this site to coordinate other events throughout the year. Also, this website is where families can access the student directory. This directory is accessible for members who have paid membership dues. We anticipate that the directory will be available in early October. From the website, you can download the mobile app as well. Please contact Julie Slotnick at email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
The new website is: https://sheehanpta.membershiptoolkit.com
