PTA Committees

There are many opportunities for you to become involved in our school.  Do you like to craft?  Maybe you like to take notes? Or perhaps you're good at organizing things?  Or maybe you like to be a 'worker bee'?  Take a look at the committees listed below and find one (or more!) that might interest you and contact the chairperson/s listed for each committee (or any one of our officers) if you'd like to help.  We'd love to hear from you! Thanks, in advance, for your support.
