PRESS RELEASE: For the past several years, Johnstown Central Council sponsored our annual Founder's Day dinner to celebrate our amazing volunteer's in our schools and in our community. Last year, Johnstown Central Council unfortunately dissolved. However, the new Johnstown Elementary PTA, Knox PTSA and the High School PTSA decided that this important recognition dinner should and must continue on. A committee was formed and the planning began leading up to this evenings event.
Founder's Day is a reminder of the substantial role PTA and PTSA's play locally, regionally, and nationally in supporting parent involvement and working on behalf of ALL children and families. It is a time to take pride in our accomplishments and a time to renew our commitment to be that powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for parents and a strong advocate for public education.
