Important Points:


1.PTA: Every Child. One Voice.

Join the PTA’s mission to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. Joining the PTA is about advocating for children. As parents we are our child’s strongest advocate so find out how you can support the school to ensure your child and all children have the successful foundation they need. You’re level of involvement is your choice but your involvement should not be an option. See the attached support the PTA letters and Email Christine Hutchings our PTA membership chair and 2nd grade parent to find out more
