Promoting NoVa PTAs

I’ve received two requests to promote holiday events at two Northern Virginia schools and decided I’d start a list that will be used for a static page that you can turn to if you’d like to support local students.

If you’ve got a school holiday event that you’d like listed, I’d be happy to include it. There is no charge, and I don’t offer any advertising on the blog. To get your event listed, send as much information as you can to SuperNoVa Mom.

Some of the events listed below are open to participation by the public, such as the craft shows, but you’ll need to register for them in advance.
