Committee Chairs 2022-2023

We look forward to providing many of Benninghoven's annual events, programs, and activities for the 2022-2023 school year! Our goal as a PTA is to support the teachers, staff and students and foster community in our school. 

This can only be accomplished with the help of MANY hands! We need your help this coming year. 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! Also, if you're feeling hesitant or nervous, please be assured that it is a team effort and we are here to support you in your role.

If you have any questions or would like more details on events/programs or committee chair responsibilities, please contact Emily Brandjord at 913-219-8683 or [email protected]

Thank you for considering volunteering to support Benninghoven teachers, students, families and the community.
