A Message from

PTA President Dennis Johnson


A PTA is all about the efforts to accomplish great things for the entire community.  If you had asked me a couple months ago what were the two key items to accomplish this year, I would have said:

1.  Meet our membership goal of 500 members- Mission accomplished!   We surpassed 500 and are still counting....  The size of the membership is critical to a PTA's influence.  Way to go Paschal and let's keep going higher.

2.  Meet our fundraising goal for our new WAC (write a check) fundraiser-We were a bit nervous as we were trying something different, but the Paschal community rallied again.  End result-Mission Accomplished for a $40,000 fundraising goal for WAC!

I am honored to be part of such an involved and generous community at Paschal.  Way to go!  Plus a special thanks for those that lead the efforts to get us to these key goals.
