Penny Road, the PTA, and our kids need you!

The 2018 Penny Road PTA Nominating Committee has been formed in order to fill the Executive Board positions for the 2018-19 school year. We have 5 members of the current board who, after a combined 15+ years of service, are stepping down. This is a wonderful time to get involved with the Penny Road PTA! We have many different positions available to suit different interest levels, talents, and time commitments. If you want to be involved, there is a spot for you! We encourage anyone who might be interested to reach out to our Nominating Committee: Barb Wright (babshall@gmail.com), Amber Olah (olah.amber@gmail.com) or Beth Potts (elizabeth.potts@ymail.com).
