Seeking Parents and Teachers of Hope (PTH) Board for Next School Year

The Treasurer and Secretary have completed their terms on the board. As such, PTH is looking to fill some board positions for next school year.  There are also at least three member-at-large positions available. We have all truly enjoyed our time on the board.  It has been a great way to get to know other parents better, learn more about the inner workings of Hope, and feel good about providing support to students, parents, and teachers. You also earn PIP hours for serving on the board.

We will all be available to train new board members and for questions throughout the year. There is just one meeting a month, three of which are General PTH meetings. Being a board officer will fulfill all of your PIP hours for the year. Members-at-large generally earn up to 15 hours of their annual PIP by being on the board. We are a small-budget PTH, so the board jobs are very manageable. The auction is a separate committee from the board.

Please contact one of us if you are interested and/or would like more info about the positions.

Secretary: Wendy Jordan,

Treasurer: Sarah Nicol,

Vice Pres.: Sonjia Barker,

President: Beth Grotelueschen,
