You Are the PTA. Help Lead It!

We’re getting close to our last PTA meeting of the year, and we need parents! We have open positions on the Executive Board and on the committees that help make our school such an amazing place.

There is a role for everyone — if your work leaves you with very little spare time, consider volunteering for an event. If you’re tech savvy or like to write, our communications committee is the place for you. If you want to be more involved, consider running for an Executive Board position.

Without the support of parents, we can’t continue to provide our students with the incredible programs they enjoy today. Think of the opera program, the family events, our thriving garden…these all exist because of collaborative efforts made by parents who are squeezing in the time wherever they can. It makes such a difference!

Mark your calendar for the June 15th meeting, where we will elect members to the positions listed below.

If you would like to run for an Executive Board role, PLEASE email president@ps372pta.org  before June 15th.
