Boyce PTA Budget:
The 2014-2015 Boyce PTA Proposed Budget is posted online for your review. The budget will be voted on at our May meeting/luncheon.  

 

 
Boyce PTA has the following open board and committee chair positions for the 2014-2015 school year. Volunteer opportunities are fairly limited at Boyce so grab a friend and get involved! Committee descriptions are available on the Boyce Website under the PTA tab.  

Please also consider committing to the Boyce Vice President position. While taking on a board position at Boyce may sound like a lot of work, it truly is not!  The VP year is spent getting to know Boyce, the committees and pitching in with Team Captains (Boyce's version of homeroom coordinators) and other activities when you are available.  The board is a lot of fun and the staff and teachers at Boyce are fantastic!
