PTA Committee Chairs work with a team to coordinate and manage various PTA events and services. This is a great way to get connected with other parents and provide some much needed help to the school.  Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Kayla Holmes at mesptalex@gmail.com if you are interested in chairing an event/service.
