PTA Executive Board Nominations 2020-2021

 

The PTA is currently working to fill our executive board positions for next year.  Becoming a board member is an excellent way to get to know more Spicewood parents and staff members while providing an invaluable service to our school.  

 

Did you know that PTA sponsors and/or supports One World One Night, STEAM Day, Math Superstars, KISS Cookout, Spelling Bee, Geography Bee, Field Day, Field Trips, Assemblies, Destination Imagination, Spring Carnival, Art in the Classroom, Reflections, Yearbook, Spirit Nights, Literacy Library, Science Fair, and much more?  

 

Our PTA can be no more effective than its leadership.  We’re asking that you consider stepping up and giving back to PTA, and Spicewood, by getting more involved!  It is critical for parents to volunteer so that PTA can continue to grow and accomplish more good work for Spicewood. 

 

If you are interested in any of the positions, please throw your name in the hat for one (or more!) of the board positions through our online PTA Executive Board Nomination Form:
