The PTA at our school works to promote the welfare and achievement of our children in the home, school, and community. It is a combined effort of all parents, teachers, and administrators. Membership is open to all parents, staff, and any adults who are interested in the objectives and activities of the PTA Association.
To help achieve our goals, the PTA sponsors the Cultural Arts programs, including assemblies and special events. They help to fund field trips and items that enhance learning in the teachers classrooms. The PTA also sponsors the Scholastic Book Fairs, Art to Remember, the Holiday Shoppe and Giving Trees. Family events include Grandparents Day, Movie Nights, the Father/Daughter Dance and Mother/Son event. This spring, the PTA will sponsor the Shamrock Sprint 5K and fun run.
Current information about the PTA can be found on the board in the front hallway of the school.

It takes a village - the PTA could not accomplish all they need to do without the generous support of our parent volunteers. All volunteer help is greatly appreciated throughout the year. Be on the look out for our weekly "PTA Tuesday" emails which contain important information and volunteer opportunities. PTA meetings are held monthly and all are welcome to attend. Please contact an officer if you have any questions. The PTA president, Sheila Eisel, can be reached at:firstname.lastname@example.org.PTA Mission StatementThe Mission of the PTA is threefold:
