What you like best about being on PTA: Working with other parents on the collective goal of making our children’s elementary education the best possible experience! Also, I know this is two things, but I do very much enjoy meeting new people/making new friends and the PTA has been the perfect place for that.

Some activities you enjoy doing with your family: cooking, eating a wide variety of foods from around the world, our Friday night movie and pizza nights, reading, watching cooking/baking competition shows, watching Amazing Race together, doing puzzles, taking walks along the shoreline, and impromptu Broadway musical singing and dancing (I do not claim to be good at either singing or dancing, but it’s something we enjoy!).

Janice Ryan | VP Membership

Preferred Name: Janice Ryan

Email: membership@earhartpta.org

Position: VP of Membership

Students Grade Levels: I have a an Earhart 5th grader and a Lincoln 7th grader

What do you like best about being on PTA: We moved here when my older child was in 2nd grade and I sought out PTA because my friends in Philadelphia were all involved in school, so I hoped to meet similar people!  It’s definitely helped me meet people and be more outgoing! I like that PTA meetings and activities keep me well informed about what’s going on at school.  It also helps show my kids that we as a family value education (pta involvement is statistically correlated to better school performance, by the way) and volunteering to help our community.

Activities you enjoy doing with your family: With my family, I like to read, play board games, and watch TV – we try to always have one family show that we only watch together.  I like it when my kids want to cook with me and I look forward to being able to travel again and explore new places in the future.

My favorite ice cream flavor: currently is Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Half Baked.  It reminds me of the Peanut Butter Cookie Dough flavor I loved as a teen that doesn’t exist anymore.  But I also like anything really, really chocolatey.
