  • Need a directory? You can become a member here. There is an activity fee that needs to be added to the membership. This fee covers one third of the PTA budget and prevents us from asking you for help with a lot of little fundraisers.
  • Reflections: This year's theme for Reflections, the National PTA arts program, is "I am Hopeful Because...". Students can choreograph a dance, produce a film, write a poem or story, compose a song, take photos, or create a piece of visual art, and then explain how it relates to the theme. Our students have been recognized at the local, state, and national level in recent years. Entries are due in the school office by Friday, November 3.
