PTA Meetings

Our Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) meets monthly during the school year on the second Monday of the month, 6:30-8:00pm in the school Media Center. There are a few exceptions to this routine, however, due to school release days. Please refer to the sidebar on the right for the 2016-17 monthly PTA meeting dates and times. 

All parents, caregivers, family members, teachers, and staff are invited to attend the monthly meetings. Each of our voices matters for all of our children. The PTA provides free childcare onsite as well as Spanish and Somali interpretation for each meeting.
