Field PTA Board 



Dear Field Families,

After serving my two-year term as your PTA Co-Chair, I would like to thank you for the opportunity to work with you, your children, and this amazing school and community. 

I also want to express my gratitude to all of you with whom I have had the privilege of volunteering with.  I have often thought of how grateful I am that our children have so many resourceful and selfless role models among our faculty, staff, and parents.
On May 15th, we held our Field PTA Executive Board elections for the 2017-2018 school year and those new officers, as well as those volunteers who have agreed to serve as committee chairs for next year will officially take their new posts. This year's officers and chairs are preparing to pass our batons so that next year's volunteers can hit the ground running.  Thank you to all who have served, past and present.  You all have made so much possible for our children.
Thank you to my children and wonderful husband, for always being so willing to help at events!
One quick final thank you to the members of the PTA Board.  It has been a great pleasure working with all of you; I am lucky to call you all friends.

Have a wonderful summer, 
Jen Buss
