Your Old Bonhomme Parent Teacher Association

OBPTO Mission Statement

The Old Bonhomme PTO is a nonprofit parent-teacher organization whose membership includes all parents, legal guardians, and staff at Old Bonhomme Elementary School. 

 

The PTO's mission is to establish a close relationship between home and school by advancing opportunities for all parents to become involved in the Old Bonhomme School community.

 

The PTO sponsors assistance to teachers in a classroom setting, raises funds for supplemental educational materials and experiences, supports school and family social interaction, and provides a non-biased forum for sharing information on issues that impact our children. 

 

It is our belief that the team effort of a parent-teacher organization offers the best possible learning environment for our children.

Jennifer Soshnik

Co-President 

 

As a life-long resident of our district and an alumna of its schools, my roots in our community and dedication to our schools are deep and strong.  After graduating Ladue Horton Watkins High School in 2000, I attended the University of Illinois and graduated with high distinction in 2004. I received my law degree from Washington University in 2007. During my legal career, I have worked primarily on civil court matters, handling family law and business law cases.  
 
My husband, Danny, and I have two children – Jordan (3rd grade) and Emmy (1st grade).  Both attend
Old Bonhomme Elementary and are the third generation in my family to attend Ladue Schools. Since Jordan began kindergarten, I have held key leadership roles at the school and district-wide, currently serving as President of the Old Bonhomme PTO, a member of the Ladue Alumni Council and most recently, a member of the district’s Diversity Committee.

Crystal Diaz-Granados

Co-Treasurer

 

I have a 3rd grader and a kindergartener at Old Bonhomme. I’ve spent most of my life in Olivette as I graduated from Ladue Horton Watkins and am excited that my children will too. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to help people set and achieve financial goals. My career keeps me honest to that dream. When I’m not working, you can find me with my husband and children outside somewhere discovering a new trail to hike, a new lake to fish, a new hill to bike or a new book to read.

Jennifer Scissors

Parent District Council

 

I have three boys, with my youngest just starting kindergarten. I work full time, but in my free time I enjoy early morning workouts, traveling and being with friends! I’m also a board member for NCJW and have been a Co-Chair of the NCJW Back to School Store for the last five years and counting.
I’m very excited to be on the PTO as a PDC Rep this year!

Lisa Moons

Board Advisor

 

I am a mom of three kids at Old Bonhomme and very thankful they are all in one place this year! I have a daughter in 4th, daughter in 2nd and a son in Kindergarten.
Old Bonhomme is a special place to be and I’m happy to be involved in our school community in a variety of ways. When I’m not shuffling kids around I enjoy cooking, exercise, being outdoors and family adventures.
