PTA is a group of parents who care, and everything we do we want to share. Although times are different, this we know, it doesn’t mean we can’t help, our efforts we will show. Please take a peak at what we do, each week there is some information that is new.
PTA MEETING: Please join us for our next PTA meeting on Wednesday, March 3rd @ 7pm, where you can learn all about PTA and the various committees. All parents are invited and encouraged to attend. Contact our PTA Co-Presidents Julie Soderna (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Jennifer Sadowski (email@example.com) with questions.
