Committees

The Mohansic PTA is a collaboration between our educators and our families working together to provide opportunities for our children – socially, emotionally and of course, academically. To be successful, we need everyone’s help. Whether you have one hour or many hours to give – in the school or at home – there is a way for everyone to be involved in supporting our children! Please join the PTA and consider volunteering during the school year.

The following is a description of committees and the chairpersons if you wish to contact them for more information.
