PTA General Membership Meetings occur several times throughout the year. The meetings give you the chance to hear from our Principal, Mr. Keith Margolus and learn about upcoming PTA events. We often have a guest speaker who will present on a topic that is relevant to our Branchville community.  As a PTA member, we also look for your participation at PTA General Membership Meetings when a vote is often required.

 

Do you have a suggestion for a PTA meeting topic?  If so, please email board@branchvillepta.org
