    PTSA Board Roles

    The Hamilton PTSA Board would like to invite you to join us, and bring a friend!  Come contribute to the school community through the PTSA, we’re working to make it easier than ever.

    Some of our old roles are being redefined with greater flexibility, and most chair positions can be shared between two people. And did we mention the convenient zoom meetings (slippers! wine!), the chance to work with Principal Manza, and getting to know more about our great school and its community?  Contact us to learn more: hamiltonptsa@live.com
