PTA Leaders,

Idaho PTA wishes everyone a very happy holiday season!  I hope everyone enjoys a little break, and spends plenty of time with family and friends.  I am looking forward to a few days off to recharge and get ready for the new year!

We have so many exciting events coming up in 2018.  See the article below for all the details on our annual Legislative Day at the capitol in Boise.  We hope to see everyone at this great (and this year FREE) event!

And don't forget our annual convention, coming up April 13-14, 2018 in Boise.  We have a great slate of speakers, workshops, and activities in the works to help in your PTA life, as well as your every day life.

I wish you all safe and happy holidays!
