Meetings

General meetings will usually be the third Monday of each month from 6 – 7:30 PM. See our Calendar for the meeting schedule.

Communicate

The PTA uses Remind for real time texts and reminders. To start, text @56pta to the number 81010. You will be prompted to download the app but it is not necessary. You control whether you receive the texts or not, and signing up does not give us access to your phone number.
