The primary responsibility is to manage overall goals and strategies of PTA and leading the PTA Board in moving forward toward achieving those goals. The president acts as a guide to all VP’s and will be responsible for overall PTA budget supervision. This will involve organizing, leading and supporting other officers and committee chairs.

Vice President 1 & 2

Both Vice Presidents will oversee the various programs and events of the PTA and support the president. The VPs will guide each committee chair and ensure timely execution of all activities.


The Secretary will attend executive board and association meetings. The Secretary will photocopy the minutes from the last general meeting for distribution (and approval) at the upcoming general meeting and prepare the sign-in sheet. The Secretary will take minutes at meetings, type them up, and post them to the website upon approval. The Secretary will participate in discussions and decision making at PTA board meetings.


The primary responsibility of the Treasurer is to receive and accurately maintain all PTA money in accordance with the PTA Membership approved annual budget. The Treasurer will provide receipts for money received, deposit all money in the PTA bank account, and pay PTA invoices and reimbursement requests as approved by the PTA membership or PTA board. The Treasurer must keep accurate records and permanent books of all PTA finances.


This is a reminder that students should not be dropped at school before 8:30 am. There is no supervision available prior to this time so please refrain from dropping your child off prior to 8:30 am.
