Want To Help Determine The Direction Of Our PTSA? Consider Joining The 2020/2021 Board

Our search for PTSA Board members has gone virtual along with school. Have you ever wondered what the PTSA does? Have ideas about how PTSA activities could be improved? Just want to become more involved in your child’s school? Consider joining the PTSA Board. Our Nominating Committee is in search of people who can help us enrich the educational experience for every child at Newcastle. We’re looking for the following positions:

  • President

  • Secretary

  • Treasurer

  • VP Outreach

  • VP Programs

  • VP Volunteers

  • VP Ways and Means

Most positions require a commitment of no more than 5 hours per month, including meetings, and we design meetings around the schedules of our board members. So whether you’re a mom or dad or grandparent, whether you work outside the home or stay home, the PTSA is for you. The only requirement is that you’re a PTSA member. If you are interested or just have questions or if you know someone you think could be great, please contact our Nominating Committee (Jessica Anderson, Marcia O’Donoghue, Sarika Sikka) at More details about each position can be found here.
