Board of Directors

Members of the Board are appointed by the Officers of the PTA to serve a one-year term as the chair of a committee. The following committee chair positions are open and in need of a volunteer for the ’20-21 school year:

  • Community PartnersThis committee helps to connect local businesses as community partners with our school. With the support of local businesses we are able to provide additional educational resources for our kids. This position requires a little salesmanship to connect businesses to this opportunity, but we're eager to help you learn and find your groove!
  • One Book One School - Every year we pick one book for the entire school to read together! The week of the book reading has a few activities that revolve around the story of the book. It is a fun and simple time that the entire school is unified on a single project.
  • ReflectionsThis annual celebration of the arts is sponsored by the National Office of PTA. Your involvement in this committee will involve planning and encouraging student participation in a variety of mediums designed to stimulate creativity around a particular theme.
  • Restaurant NightsRecruit area restaurants and coordinate with the North Star community to encourage family togetherness through eating out one night each month with proceeds benefiting the PTA.
  • Stars on StageEach year our school participates in a stage performance that highlights the talents of our students. This committee coordinates with a local theater company to help us, and enlists parent volunteers to organize and support the program.
