The Executive Board is formed by elections.  Every year in March, a nominating committee is formed and nomination forms are sent home to all parents.  You can nominate yourself or someone else.  The returned forms are sent to the Nominating Committee who then contacts all those who were nominated to see if they would like to run.  Voting ballots are sent home to each family in April.  


Who makes up the Executive Board?  This board consists of the Pastor, Principal, Assistant Principal, Parents’ Association President, First Vice President, Second Vice President(s), Third Vice President(s), Secretary, Treasurer, Service Coordinator(s), and Advisor.  This board sets the agenda for Governing Board meetings and facilitates the affairs of the Parent Association between meetings.
