After School Enrichment 2014-2015
Has your child enjoyed our Clubs or Arts classes?
Each of these is chaired by a PTA volunteer. PTA is looking for folks who would like to chair an after school enrichment club next year. We are also looking for a person to co-chair the Arts classes. Please contact Anne Lind for more information.

Got a Little time? Got a lot?
Volunteering a bit of your time and talents can help transform a good school into a GREAT school.

Even if you only have an hour or two a week, you can make a difference! There are many PTA sponsored opportunities available to get involved and help our children, teachers, and staff.

Please take a moment to review these opportunities and let us know which ones interest you!
