Johnson Elementary PTA Committees
Our PTA is completely dependent upon volunteers to plan and run all our programs and events. We invite you to get involved by donating your time and talents to help. New ideas and creativity are always welcome! Whether you want to organize the program/event (Chair), join a committee, or simply lend a hand at one event, the amount of time you choose to commit is up to you.
If you are interested in volunteering at any of the events listed, please contact the event chair. If it is blank or if you have any questions, contact the PTA Co-Presidents.
