Welcome, and thank you for volunteering to help the Abernethy PTA! One of the first things you'll want to do is set up your PTA email address, contacts, calendar, and Google Drive access.

The Abernethy PTA utilizes Google Suite for nonprofits. If you already have a personal Gmail account, the setup will be familiar.

If at any point you need assistance, please contact Doug Lee at
