Did you know that each grade has two parent leads who work to enhance communication and build community? Grade Level Reps are volunteer positions that are coordinated through the PTA to organize grade-level events, assist with field trip support, act as a liaison to the grade-level teacher lead, and organize parent volunteers as needed.
They also play a big part in reiterating important, timely info to make sure it isn't overlooked. This year's grade level reps are listed below. You may recognize their names from posting in your grade level GroupMe. If you ever need clarification on any info, they are a great place to start.
4th: Stephanie Dolph & Kay Wood
5th: Liz Johnson & Elena Richey
6th: Lindsay Goldapp & Nikki Hurston
7th: Melissa Cunningham & Kristine Osborn
8th: Melanie Davis & Kristy Dixon
