Presidents and Principals Luncheon

Every year, the Council hosts a luncheon to thank our presidents and principals for their support of PTA.  The relationship between a PTA president and their principal is essential to PTA’s success.  With them working as a team, so much can be accomplished.

The McKamy MS Band Honor Wind Ensemble performed for us and did an outstanding job!  Thank you to their director, Russell Cote, and McKamy MS principal, Peter Taggart, for making it happen.  Amber Fulton from Friends of Texas Public Schools was our speaker and did a wonderful job of reminding us of why we need to stand up for public education.

Thank you so much to all who were able to attend.  To those who weren’t able, we missed you and hope to see you next year.  Thank you for all that you do.
