Parents, it is our hope that you enjoy and appreciate the work that our PTA puts in to our school to compliment the dedicated faculty and staff that make our school so special. We so appreciate all the parents who support us in our efforts! Without an active and engaged PTA, programs fall aside and our school suffers. There is always a reason to say no, there are plenty more reasons to say yes!
