PTO Elections for 2020-2021

Holy Cross Academy’s PTO helps all of us achieve our mission each day by offering their time and support to the students, parents and teachers so that we all can be successful. Our PTO plans and implements important events in the life of our school that we all enjoy (and now really miss) and is always there to keep the spirits of our school high. Each spring, all HCA parents are invited to run for PTO offices for the coming school year.

Office Positions are:

President:
Vice President:
Secretary:
Treasurer:
Member At Large (4)

If you are not able to be part of the Executive Board…that’s OK, but know…you ARE the PTO and your heart and help are needed to assist our children and our school grow and achieve our vision of a bigger and brighter tomorrow.  Given this year and the challenges our children faced with grace and compassion; we are looking forward to an amazing 2020-2021 school year and everyone's help is needed. Remember you do not have to be on campus to help…we have many things that can be done “behind closed doors”/ or living rooms or kitchen tables.
 
PTO Board Elections are coming up soon. Please take a moment to consider being part of the board and assist in helping our school thrive.  

To get yourself on the spring ballot, please send a short Bio (really it does not have to be a resume) to Dawn Mauro at  dawn.mauro@genexservices.com

The closing date is May 23 rd .  Elections will take place via Constant Contact shortly thereafter.
