Committee Chairs 2021-2022

We are looking forward to being able to provide many of our annual events, programs, and activities next year and are starting to recruit committee chairs! If you're feeling hesitant or nervous, please be assured that we will help you thorugh it. Our PTA can't do all of the great things we do without the help of MANY hands! Whether you have a flexible schedule during the school day or need to do something that can be done on your own time, there's something for everyone! 

If you have any questions or would like more details on events/programs or committee chair responsibilities, please contact Heather Hussey at 913-669-9887 or [email protected]
