Aura Jusula : Secretary
I am Aura Jusula. It seems fitting to continue to serve as a volunteer as PTA secretary this year since I have been volunteering in a school environment since I was 8 years old with progressively, increasing responsibilities. My mom was the head school secretary in a couple elementary schools in the White River School District and instilled the love of helping and my super power, organization. I have two boys. Taeven is a 7th grader, attending Aylen Junior High in a self contained classroom because he has been diagnosed as high functioning on the Autism Spectrum and not able to keep up in general education classes. Oziel is my little sports fanatic in the 2nd grade playing football with Puyallup Junior Vikings, flag football, and basketball. I have a part time job working with MultiCare as a comfort care therapist for hospice patients and my other role of stay at home, sports mom. When I have the time, I love cooking, baking, and being outside enjoying nature.
The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is committed to increasing parental involvement in support of Maplewood Elementary faculty, staff, and students. Research indicates parent support helps to provide the best learning environment possible for students to be academically successful. And we think that's important.
Join us! By becoming a PTA memeber, volunteering, attending events or simply donating to whatever cause is closest to your heart.
The purpose of the PTA is to promote the welfare of children and youth in home, school, and community. Most specifically:
To bring into closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of children and youth.
To develop between educators and the general public such united efforts as will secure for all children and youth the highest advantages in physical, mental, social, and spiritual education.
