General Membership Meetings

Attending General Membership Meetings are a great way to find out what's going on at school. The PTSA business meeting is often followed by a Parent Education topic or a guest speaker. All are welcome! You do not need to be a PTSA member to attend, although only members can vote. There will be time to socialize shortly before and after each meeting.

Questions? Please contact our PTSA President.
