2014-2015 OFFICERS
Karin Bennett
2018-19 PTSA
The PTSA’s mission is to work together as parents, teachers and students toward goals that benefit every student in the school. Our goal in 2014-2015 is to support the school in its efforts to rebrand the school’s image, improve communications, and offer programs to invite families into the school. We want to help make the community aware of the outstanding programs that are offered at the school, thereby helping the school achieve their goals of increased enrollment and improved test scores, which will, in turn, improve student morale, enrich the student’s experience at school, assist their chances of obtaining quality employment, college enrollment and even scholarships, due to the improved ranking and reputation of the school. In addition, as a member of the PTA and PTSA programs, our students are eligible to participate in competition for many scholarships given out by these organizations. Through our participation in the PTA, we are also able to provide families access to the Clothing Assistance Program.
