Founder’s Day is a reminder of the substantial role PTAs and PTSAs play locally, regionally and nationally in supporting parent involvement and working on behalf of children and families. It is a time to take pride in our accomplishments, renew our commitment to be a powerful voice for all children, be a relevant resource for parents and be a strong advocate for public education.
Thank you to this year’s honorees, and to JEPTA, Knox PTSA and JHS PTSA, for the dedication and commitment provided to the students of the Greater Johnstown School District.
