President: Susan Cunningham
Hi! I'm Susan Cunningham, PTA President for 2020-2021! I have an 8th grader at Rancho Starbuck Middle School and a 6th grader here at Olita. I have been on the Olita PTA Board for 8 years. I started attending PTA meetings when my first son was in Kindergarten because I wanted to know about school issues and activities and to be a part of the planning and execution of events. I don't have a college degree or any special skills. I simply want to be a part of what goes on at my children's school. There is no greater validation than to see students smile and laugh during events or to have them thank you for the activities and programs they get to enjoy while at Olita. Children inherently understand when you show that you think they're important and by volunteering at even just 1 event or activity you can make a huge impact. I feel honored that I get to be a part of something that directly benefits these amazing children at Olita!
Meet the rest of the 2020/2021 amazing PTA Board members below!
