The current Jefferson-Houston PTA Board recognizes that many parents and caregivers are under-represented in the Jefferson-Houston PTA, and we need to change this. All members of the Board are committed to supporting any parent or caregiver, even those who have not been involved with the PTA in the past, in taking on new leadership roles within the JH PTA. We would also appreciate any suggestions or feedback from our families about how we can be more inclusive and encourage broader engagement from our whole school community.
The Jefferson-Houston PTA is looking for volunteers to serve as committee chairs and committee members for the 2023-2024 school year. Please get in touch with the JH PTA if you’d like to get involved.
