Board Members

The Pathfinder PTSA Board of Directors is made up of four elected positions and a larger team of appointed committee chairs, liaisons and staff members. This group meets monthly to address PTSA business and chart a path for the PTSA. Meeting minutes are posted on the PTSA bulletin board across from the main office. The meetings are open to the larger school community; if you wish to attend, please contact the PTSA President.

There are a few open liaison positions (see below) and a desire to add members to our communications and Earth Project teams. Please contact the member below if you are interested!
