Meet the President
If you have ever thought about getting involved in the PTA and felt too shy to just show up to a meeting, maybe you’d feel better if you knew our fearless leader.
Let me introduce Rachel Vuyancih! Rachel has been at Grant Elementary for 9 years now and has been active with the PTA for most of that time. This is her second year as PTA president and I know she wants to go out with a bang and make this year the best year ever!
If you have seen her around school you already know she is sweet and approachable. I promise she will make you feel welcome at all of the meetings. Rachel knows everyone’s lives are different and some of us can only donate a small amount of time so you will not be pressured to take on anything.
So please join us at a meeting send an email to GrantPTALakewood@gmail.com if you'd like to get involved and help make this year the greatest Grant has had!
Ways you can get involved:
- Volunteer in the classroom at class parties (or just one party)
- Help at membership tables at varios community events
- Count box tops
- Assist with COSI - volunteer for an hour or a week - up to you
- Assist with the book fairs - one hour or up to the whole week - up to you
- Plan and/or volunteer at the 5th grade party
- Help make buttons or stamps for Spirit Days - an hour in the morning
