I hope everyone is having a wonderful, relaxing summer. I know that school is the farthest thing from everyone’s minds right now. Believe me, I’m right with you, but I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself and the PTA board and share a little bit about ourselves. My name is Laurie Murtaugh and this is my second year as PTA president. I have a 5th grader and 1st grader at DES and a 7th grader at Baker Middle School.
