Committees: 2016-2017 School Year

All of these programs have a need for help in one way or another. For more information about each committee plus information about how you can help, please click on the committee name or contact the committee chair(s).  If the chair is vacant then please send an email to
Please take some time to read through and consider volunteering even an hour of your time to help out on a committee.  Grab a friend and divide the work in two!  It's a great way to meet new people and find out what the PTA at Orenda is all about.
