EACH YEAR A PARENT TEACHER GUILD (PTG) is formed. The PTG is comprised of a president, president-elect (who becomes president the following year), treasurer, treasurer-elect (who becomes treasurer the following year), and secretary. The function of the PTG is to assist in the coordination of fundraising activities, formation of volunteer groups, and parent sponsored activities of the school. The PTG also serves as a liaison between the parent body and the principal. The nomination committee of the PTG is seeking nominees for the 2016-2017 school year.
