Our PTA is responsible for building good citizens of our students. We do so by example with programs that express appreciation and recognition to people involved in our school and our community. Service Programs also promote health and fitness to our student body through a number of other events.
I am excited for another great school year at Tampa Palms. It is my privilege to be the Vice President of Service and Hospitality this year. I look forward to serving our school community and enjoying the added bonus of building great friendships with fellow TPE families, faculty and staff. I believe that our elementary school experience will be what you make it. My family and I have been heavily involved in the programs at TPE and had a wonderful experience. I encourage you to get involved. The benefits of helping out at school, far outweigh the sacrifice of your time. Here is to a great year! Emily Krapohl, VP of Service and Hospitality
