Time commitment: This is a weekly commitment; however, some weeks there is nothing to be sent home. Volunteers meet every Thursday morning. The amount of time required each week varies but rarely is it more than a few hours (some week we do not have anything that needs distributing).

PTA Meeting Wrap Up and Thank you!
It is with a grateful heart that I acknowledge the following parents who will be leaving the PTA Executive Board and have given so much of their time over the years. Lindsay Tremelling, Sherri Stecher, Laurie Cockman and Jennifer Greco have given more than 15 years of service between them. We are all so appreciative of their time, energy and effort.
I would also like to recognize and congratulate Jennifer Greco who was honored by the Wake County PTA as Penny Road's Volunteer of the Year. Jennifer has worked tirelessly as our Vice President of Fundraising this year and Vice President of Programs last year. She has co-chaired the Spring Carnival these last two year and been a room parent extraordinaire over the years. On behalf of all of Penny Road, congratulations Jennifer!
Thank you everyone for supporting our 2017-2018 PTA!
