The Mountainside PTA recently held a "New Parent" welcome night at the Beechwood Media Center.
New parents were introduced to the 2012-2013 PTA Board as well as: Dr. Nancy Lubarsky, Chief School Administrator; Ms. Joy Blom, Beechwood Director of Curriculum and Instructional/Building Administration; Ms. Kimberly Richards, Deerfield Principal; and members of the Board of Education.
The PTA explained their role in funding field trips, assemblies, and author visits to the schools.
The PTA also uses money raised for donations to the school library, classrooms, and hosts events for the students, staff, and community.
The PTA Fall Festival will take place Saturday, October 13 from 12 to 4 p.m.
The PTA is also a source for 400+ volunteers at various school events.
