Open PTA Board Positions 2022-23

We will have several openings on our PTA Board for the 2022-23 and 2023-24 school years! Each position is a two-year term.

We recognize that many of our families are unfamiliar with what the PTA does during a year without COVID restrictions, as the last two years have been so atypical. Included below are all of the open positions, along with descriptions of each position outlining what each role does during a non-COVID year.

If you are interested in a position, whether you'd like to take it on or get more information, please click the button to fill out the application form.

The PTA Board is a great opportunity to be a part of a nationally recognized Board, form relationships with other Division families and teachers/staff and contribute to your student's academic and school experience. In order for the PTA to continue to provide such wonderful opportunities for our students in the years to come, we need volunteers - it can't be done without you!
