PARENT INVOLVEMENT MATTERS

Our final PTA meeting of the year will be on Thurs., May 9. Dinner and childcare (ages 3 and up) are provided. Dinner begins at 5:30 p.m. The meeting will begin at 6 pm. Please RSVP HERE! PTA meetings are open to the entire school body. In an effort to decrease waste, we encourage families to bring their own dishes and napkins. The PTA Executive Board elections will occur at the May meeting. We have several vacancies for both officers and committee chairs. If you're interested in a leadership position, contact Tim Hill to let us know how you wish to help.
