PTA News

Since 1909 the Texas PTA has made available the honorary Texas Life Membership as one of the highest honors that may be presented to individuals for outstanding service to the children and youth. It is awarded to a person whose dedication to both Boals Elementary School and our community goes above and beyond. This can be a neighbor, a friend, or a teacher who has contributed significantly to school, work, and/or the community. Life Members will be recognized this spring at a Boals PTA Meeting as well as attend a Frisco ISD Banquet that honors PTA Life Membership awards for the 2015-2016 school year.


Do you know of someone deserving of this honor? Please fill out the attached form, place it in a sealed envelope marked "PTA Life Member", and return it to the school office or e-mail your nominations to membership@boalspta.org with the memo: Life Membership. Nominations are due Thursday, February 19th.
