Congratulations KDE PTA on earning the 2015 President’s List
Award!

This significant award represents that by December 19, 2015, KDE PTA had achieved Active Status with Texas PTA and recruited more members than you had all of last year!

In honor of your accomplishment, KDE PTA will be recognized on Texas PTA’s social media outlets and will be given special recognition in this year’s Superintendent’s PTA Report Card.

It is important that you let your members know that not only do they belong to the largest child advocacy organization in the state, but they also belong to one of the most successful local PTAs in the state!

Woohoo! Way to go dragons!!

If you or someone you know is interested in serving in one of the executive positions listed below, please complete the online form below no later than February 12th.

All nominees being considered for office must be PTA members in good standing and be able to successfully fulfill the duties of the position. Elections for the 2016-17 PTA Board will be held at the March 22nd General Membership Meeting.
