Nantucket Elementary School PTA
Below are the nominees for the PTA Executive Board for the 2019/20 school year. Elections will be held on April 24th at 6:30pm in the Media Center. Childcare is available in the gym for school aged children.
My name is Samantha Weaver and I am running for President of the PTA. My daughter Abigail is a 3rd grader here at Nantucket Elementary and I have been an active member of the PTA, serving as President for the past 2 years. I bring over a decade of experience as an officer for non-profit organizations with a proven track record of creative thinking, social activity organization and fiscal responsibility. I believe that every parent, teacher and child brings unique knowledge, experience and attributes to our school and as President, I will continue to work to encourage school-wide participation in our shared goal of making Nantucket Elementary the very best place to learn.
The membership committee runs our annual membership drive. Volunteers will assist in data entry, proofreading and distribution of membership cards.
The spirit wear and school kits committee runs both drives. Volunteers will assist with selecting vendors and options available for sale, collect payments, and distribute purchases.
The communication lead works with all committee leads and the executive board to update Facebook, Twitter and our website. The communication lead is responsible for creating and emailing our bi-weekly newsletter.
The yearbook committee designs and arranges the sale of the yearbook. Volunteers will assist with gathering pictures from parents, help design the year book and organize the sale and distribution of yearbooks.
The hospitality committee has the very enjoyable task of showing appreciation and support for our wonderful faculty and staff. The committee provides meals and small gifts throughout the year. Volunteers are needed to donate and/or shop for food and set-up and clean up from events.
The fundraising committee is responsible for running our 2019 Boosterthon fundraiser! In addition, the fundraising committee will setup spirit nights at local restaurants and run our direct donation campaign.
My name is Nicola Rust-Skippen. I have two kids; Lucy is a seventh grader at Crofton Middle and Luke will be in first grade this fall. Lucy was at NES all 6 years and I was very active in the PTA throughout her tenure. First year I was Communications co-chair, then Secretary, next two years I was Treasurer, and my 6th year I was President. The current 2018-19 school year I am Treasurer again. I’m excited to be back at Nantucket this fall to be involved and help in anyway I can.
My name is Jennifer Cavin and I am running for Treasurer. My daughter, Chloe, will be a 4th grader at Nantucket this Fall. I joined the PTA as the Communications Chair when Chloe was in 2nd grade. I enjoy volunteering at the school every week, making copies for the 3rd grade teachers. I worked at a bank for 15 years so I believe I can keep track of the PTA's finances.
Did you know planning for the 2019/2020 school year will start THIS MAY! The PTA will meet this summer to plan and organize the events for the school year. By the first PTA meeting, all events and schedules must be scheduled and approved by the school. If you want a bigger voice in the PTA, NOW is the time to get involved!

The community events and programs committee plans free family events for our school community. In addition to determining what events the PTA will sponsor, the committee members work with outside vendors and partners as needed; coordinate use of the building and facilities with school staff; publicize and promote the event; coordinate event volunteers and manage the event itself, including set-up and clean-up.
My name is Robyn Cohen and I am running for Vice President of the PTA. My daughter, Abby, is in third grade and my son, Josh is in first grade. They love school very much!! I have been the room mom in both kids' classes and really enjoy being involved. I served on the PTA board as the Secretary for the past two years. We are proud to be apart of such a wonderful school and looking forward to another great school year!
