SWANSFIELD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PTA

PTA AND VOLUNTEER WEBSITE

 

Good Day!

 

Thank you to our wonderful parents who have served on our PTA Board: Patricia Castle (Treasurer), Maureen Tucker (2nd Vice President) and Brynn Conover (Recording Secretary).  Their time and dedication to the PTA are so greatly appreciated.

 

 I am pleased to introduce our new PTA Board Members.  Serving as 2nd Vice President for 2014-2015 is Annette Varoli.  Born and raised in Baltimore County, Annette Varoli lived in New York City for a decade, prior to moving to Columbia, Maryland last August!  She has worn many "hats" throughout her life serving as her high school class president, an architect, a project manager in corporate construction and a holistic health coach.  Currently, Annette is on "Mommy-Duty" to 2nd grader Elise Varoli and she is excited to bring her enthusiasm and leadership skills to help the SES PTA and the community-at-large!


 I am also pleased to introduce our new Treasurer, Dionne Lynch Brown.  Dionne has held and continues to wear many hats. She has worked along side her family, as an insurance professional. Her extensive knowledge on personal, professional, and financial matters has been an asset for the last 20 years. Dionne’s real passion is her family, and being mommy to her 4th grader, Hunter. She grew up originally in Prince George's County.  She has also lived in Nashville, TN for a few years, before coming back to Maryland, and falling in love with Columbia 14 years ago.  Dionne is extremely excited to serve and give back to SES.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. I can be reached at ptapresident@swansfieldpta.org or 410 941-9365.
