PTA Open Positions for 2015-16 School Year
Fun Run-We had secured a volunteer to chair next year's Fun Run but alas, they have decided to move out of Klahanie-bummer! This parent has graciously offered to help see the Fun Run through(thank you!) but it makes more sense for her and us to have a Challenger parent in charge of the show. Listen carefully when I tell you that this is "fundraising for dummies!" With Orange Ruler directing the operation all we need is someone to execute the plan at Challenger, with the help of other parents. The reason we are going with Orange Ruler is because not only do we make money, we do not break the backs of the parents in charge. Please consider this role-it is vital to the continued operations of the Challenger PTA! Please send any questions to . An inquiry does not mean obligation so please feel free to contact us.

Yearbook Coordinator-Our current coordinator is off to Beaver Lake so we are looking for a replacement. This job is the perfect role for someone who has little ones at home or cannot come into the school often to volunteer. Most of the work for this job can be done in front of your computer! Please refer any questions to our current chair, Shirley Rullan at

Eager Reader-Another fairly easy and non labor intensive role. Now that we have changed the program there is a much less significant time commitment. Please contact Jennifer Laramore with any questions at

All PTA programs are optional, which means if we do not find a Program Chair they will not happen. If you really enjoy a particular program and want to see it continue at Challenger, please find a friend and join our team!
