The 2022-2023 school year is underway and Northshore Council PTSA leaders are looking forward to another amazing year of PTA! We would like to start this year off by introducing you to Council’s new Co-Presidents: Rachel Fitzgerald and Mary Khouzam.
My name is Rachel Fitzgerald. I've got 3 kiddos; a 6th and an 8th grader at Leota Middle School and my oldest who graduated this past year from Woodinville High School. I have been an active volunteer at my local schools since my oldest started Kindergarten and this will be my 6th year serving in a leadership role on a PTA. I have served as president for both my local elementary, middle school, and even the high school music boosters, though most of you are probably familiar with my role as Council's VP of Communications the previous 2 years. I am excited and look forward to supporting our local leaders and serving the NSD community this year.
My name is Mary Khouzam, and I have two children who attend North Creek High School, and one at Skyview Middle School. I'm honored to serve as Northshore Council’s Co-President, having previously served as Council VP. I have been an active member of PTSA for the better part of eight years, holding different local board positions, including president, as well as serving on various committees over the years. I’m excited to put my previous experience to work for Council for the benefit of all students in our community.
Council leaders know first-hand how many curveballs were thrown our way – as community leaders and as parents – over the last few years. And we have continually been amazed at our local leaders for overcoming obstacles, creating community, supporting students and schools, and showing everyone exactly what it means to be #PTAFlexible. We know this year will continue to show growth among our PTA membership and the programs and supports Northshore PTAs provide for their communities.
We also know that it’s not always easy to do it alone. This is why we want to let you know that Council is always here for you. Our mission as your Northshore PTSA Council is to support the work you do at the local PTA level. We have many resources that can help you navigate the day-to-day PTA work, as well as the unexpected, including:
Wishing you a fantastic school year!
Rachel Fitzgerald & Mary Khouzam
