Thank You Volunteers!

Thank YouThe great tradition of public education has been to make a difference for children.  The National PTA was organized to fight child abuse in the sweat shops of our country. Whenever we have children in need, our volunteers are there to help.

It is hard to imagine where we would be without our volunteers.  This is the week we say the ‘Thank You’ that needs to be said every day.

On behalf of our children and staff, thank you for volunteering to make                                                                   a difference.
