Community Events/Programs - The community events and programs committee plans free family events for our school community. Events in the past have included a Movie Night, Ice Cream Social and Family Fitness Night. 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.

Fundraising - The fundraising committee is responsible for selecting and running the programs or sales that fund PTA programs. In addition to the direct appeal that is underway, the PTA sponsors restaurant fundraisers, sells spirit wear, sponsors sales-based fundraisers and runs the Boosterthon.
