PTA work is never done

The PTA slows down over the summer but we are working on plans for the start of the new school year.  The PTA runs on volunteers and the work is not always about meetings.  Lots of work to be done setting up events, picking up items at Costco, or helping with a tax audit. If you have a skill you would like to share, let the PTA know and we will see how we can put your skills to best use.  Keep a watch on the Parents page for updates and to see what activities will be happening in August and September!
