IMPORTANT MESSAGE from SHES PTA Board Nominating Committee

Dear Families:

As you may know, SHES PTA is currently considering board nominations for the 2019-2020 school year. We must have an elected board in place to begin the upcoming school year in good standing with our county and state PTAs. Without PTA, events such as Back-to-School Bingo, Fall Fest and Wonderland Holiday Shoppe would simply not exist.  Please consider nominating yourself or another registered volunteer for a board position.  It's a great way to get involved, meet other families and give back to our amazing SHES family.  Below are just a few quotes from current board members about why they enjoy their role on the board.

"Serving as treasurer for the SHES PTA has been a great experience!  My family moved to Safety Harbor not knowing anyone here. Serving on the PTA Board has provided a fantastic opportunity to meet new people while supporting an organization that directly benefits SHES students, teachers, and families." -Kerri Kent, Treasurer

"One of the things I enjoy about being on the board is knowing we are making a difference for our students and teachers. We are their voice and we can make things happen. I’ve enjoyed the special friendships that I have developed in PTA, and I love to be involved in the fun activities." -Jennifer Rothe, VP, Membership

"I enjoy being a part of a parent led group dedicated to assisting our school in providing the best school experience we can for our children." -Nadine Hughes, VP, Advocacy

"I have enjoyed being more connected to the school by joining the PTA. Since this is my son’s first year at SHES it was important to me so see first hand how active and involved our PTA is and to see the positive effect it has on the student body as well as the faculty." -Julie Peretta, Member, PTA Board Nominating Committee


Please volunteer today!
