Thanks to all of you that have signed up to be part of the PTA and those of you that have volunteered to be a committee chair for the year! 

While the PTA Board is fully staffed for the current 2014-2015 school year, the following positions will be available next year.  Please start thinking about these positions and whether you or someone you know would be a great fit!

  • President
  • President-Elect
  • Vice President
  • Secretary

Please note that these positions rarely (if ever) require your time during the school day.  Each position is very flexible.  Most importantly, the Kerr PTA cannot operate next year unless these positions are filled.
