THANK YOU TO ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT--Heather Wilson, PTA President

To All PUE Families! It has been quite the journey and I can't express how much I have appreciated you giving me the opportunity to be the PUE PTA President. I have had an incredible group of people that have supported me and helped me with growing the PUE Family! THANK YOU to Valerie DeBruin, Denise Brown, Rachael Paden, Jennifer Finnell, Dawn Goodwin, Janice Page, Parker Ress, Laura Cox, Jen Faustino, Natalie Wilson, Jenne Kendziora, Mr Biles, Ms Fricke, the administration and teachers, the room parents and so many other people that have helped me with creating a VISION for our school. I could never have been able to do this job without you! I will continue to be quite involved in our PTA because I am a true believer that it is the PTA that bridges the parents and our school and is the foundation for our school community. I am desperately seeking a new replacement for me. I have created an incredible board and committee heads for the 2019-2020 school year but we need our new leader!! Please reach out to me at heatherandmckenna@yahoo.com if you are interested or would like to be more involved in our PTA.
