PTA Meeting Tuesday, January 8 and Resolution on New School

Please join us for the next PTA meeting on Tuesday, January 8 at 7:30 pm in the library.  At the meeting we will vote on a proposed resolution to endorse the new elementary school on the Williamsburg campus.  Please click here to read the proposed resolution.  Noah Simon, the newest member of the School Board and our School Board liaison, will also attend the meeting to hear feedback from our community.

The PTA needs you!

With over 45 jobs already filled, many of your friends and neighbors are already volunteering for different jobs in the PTA.  We have a couple of critical positions that need to be filled.

We need volunteers in order to hold the auction and continue other important programs this year (and if no one steps up, it won’t happen!).  Please consider helping out.  The PTA is a volunteer organization, so no previous work experience is required! Read more
