Message from Paschal PTA President 

Dennis Johnson


Greetings, still a lot of school year left, but we are already peeking ahead to next year. 


A successful 8th grade round-up was held on the 16th, thanks to the many folks that made this happen. 


We held a general PTA membership meeting as part of the round-up where the most important thing we did was select our nominating committee who's task is to fill next year's PTA Board.


Nomination for the 2015 - 2016 PTA Board are being accepted through March 20th, with self nominations encouraged. Please click here for the nomination form.


Please mark your calendar for Coffee with Dr. Mossige on Thursday, April 2nd at 8:45 a.m. in the cafeteria.


This meeting will be held in conjunction with a PTA General Membership meeting where we will among other things, elect the PTA officers for next year. 


Of course this meeting is a great opportunity for all to enjoy dialogue with out Principal.


By the way, we are 701 members strong in the PTA,nearly double that of last year.


We've came this far, please help us get to 750 members which would get us to double of last year and join today by clicking here.
