president’s message

A newly elected executive board and board of directors led by President, Gena Kraemer, met in July to plan the upcoming PTA
year. We look forward to sharing our goals with you. For well over a year many of us were not together—although we tried with virtual Bingo & Trivia, virtual meetings, neighborhood drive thru parades, social distance graduations, drive thru meal & supply pickups 

Advocacy

Proposing and supporting policies and laws that better the education and lives of children is one of Wisconsin PTA’s most important roles. Use your voice at the local, state or federal level to make the changes important to Wisconsin’s children.
