Join a Committee

In addition to volunteering to help with specific events, we have several areas that we need help with ongoing. Consider joining one (or more!) of these committees to help us be able to cover even more areas and assist the school on a broader scale. We appreciate any and all support you can provide on these committees! Please do not feel overwhelmed - there will be a PTA Board Member chairing each committee to provide guidance and support. Committee members will not be solely responsible for the events noted within their committee descriptions - we will always encourage additional volunteer support.
