North Shore PTA Information
Hello North Shore Family,
We hope that you find yourselves both safe and healthy in these challenging times. We know that what we are going through is unprecedented and there are not a lot of concrete answers out there, but we want to make sure that your PTA continues to be a place where we can find and build community, as well as support each other. Please make sure to join our Facebook Page North Shore Knights PTA (https://www.facebook.com/groups/107946019670752/) and reach out to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns that we might be able to help with. In a time where many of us feel more isolated and alone we want to do everything we can to build relationships, support each other and connect with one another.

Introducing the 2020-2021 Leadership Team!
As the 2019-2020 school year comes to a close we wanted to take a minute to thank the folks that have served in leadership positions this year as well as introduce you all to the amazing volunteers coming in.
First let us say thank you to Jon Kile, Katice Helinski, Mrs. Suarez, and Mrs. Gramlich who have all served multiple years on our PTA Board and will be transitioning off this coming year. You have all given your time, talents and treasures to our North Shore school community and we are grateful to you for all of it! A special shout out to Mrs. Gramlich who has been the teacher liaison for our PTA for the last 10 years. Thank you for everything you have done to strengthen our PTA and support our school!
