PTA Committee Members 2021-22
PTA is a volunteer driven organization – we choose our goals, we plan the activities, and we enrich our children's lives. Committees are the practical and democratic way of involving the membership in attaining PTA goals. No experience is necessary to serve as a PTA Committee Chair. All chairs receive guidance and support from the PTA Board. If you are interested in serving as a Committee Chair, please contact the PTA Board.
