From the Desk of Our President
6 more weeks…can you believe it? 6 more weeks until the last school bell of the 2018-2019 signals that the school year is complete! I don’t know about you but your PTA board is ready for a much-needed break from all of the planning of the fun events and programs that you and your families enjoyed this year. From the Back 2 School Bash in September to Donuts with Dad the last week in May – a lot has been envisioned, executed and enjoyed over the course of the year.
Even though summer is just around the corner, your board is already setting its sights on the next school year and after a unanimous vote at our General Membership meeting on April 23rd, I am delighted to share the new 2019-2020 PTA Executive Committee with you:
- President Ginny Beers
- Treasurer Jennifer Ryan
- Secretary Melissa Sahay
- VP Communications Katie Caldwell
- VP Family Engagement Jennifer Maroulis
- VP Fundraising Kelly Davis
- VP Programs Tricia Kennedy
We do have 1 open position on the Executive Committee - VP Events. This position will oversee all of the events that your PTA hosts. Don’t worry, you won’t have to run each event. Our great board is already working to fill all of those positions. If interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set up a time to talk.
The 7 board members named above cannot do the job alone. We will be supported by the following list of amazing volunteers that raised their hands for Chair positions for the 2019-2020 school year:
- Marketing & Webmaster Michelle Interiano
- Social Media Yasmine Mendez
- Welcome Back Breakfast Ginny Beers

If you want to make a direct impact at BTES, we still have availability on the board for someone like you! Please reach out to any of us to talk about joining the stampede we call the PTA. The following positions are still available:
Fall Fest / Holiday Shoppe / Craft Fair / Volunteers / Dad Daughter Dance / Power Plates
As always, I am humbled that our General Membership has voted me to lead this amazing team for a 2nd term. I would not have been able to accomplish all of our goals without the fantastic group of parents that have supported me this past year. I am excited to see what happens next!
Keep Stampeding On!
