Meet our 22-23 PVO Board

My name is Stevie Shannon. I have been on the PVO board since 2018. My daughter is in 5th grade and has been going to TSMS since Kindergarten. My major goal for 2022 – 2023 is to find better ways to raise money for the school than we have in the past. We are consistently doing things for the staff and teachers, and it would be nice to provide them with amazing monthly surprises.
