The PTA Needs Parents Like You…

Hey there parents! We know you don’t have a lot of time in your day….but we need your help to keep this PTA running. Even I, your friendly newsletter scribe, wasn’t sure about being on the board. With two kids and a full-time job, it can be a lot. But it has been a rewarding experience. I feel much more connected to the school and teachers. And hey, we’re a pretty fun team, and the remaining three of us will be here to help make this a success!

These are the three openings: 

  • President
  • Communications Secretary (that’s me now. I’ll be here to help or whatever :)
  • Treasurer

You can email any of us on the board with questions. Or contact president@dranesvillepta.com directly with questions, additional info, or to express your interest.
