PTA EXECUTIVE BOARD


PRESIDENT, SHAYNA LEVIN

shayna.levin@gmail.com

I am looking forward to serving this year at the President of the Commerce Elementary PTA.  We have THE BEST school community and I am looking forward to supporting and guiding our board and our families as we continue raising funds and creating impactful programming and events for our students.  This is my third year on the Commerce PTA Executive Board and my fourth year overall at Commerce.  I was the District Representative for the past two years.  I also serve as the Secretary on the district’s PTSA Council.  In addition to being mom to my twins in 3rd grade, I also own a local business.  I am busy going in lots of directions but I wouldn’t have it any other way!

In my free time (haha) I like to spend time with friends and family and I love to travel.  I have been on over 30 cruises!  My motto is “The best time to do anything is right now!”  Go Cougars!

VP OF MEMBERSHIP, MEGHAN SMITH

Hello!  My name is Meghan Smith.  I have 4 kids, Mason (7yrs), Max (5yrs), Emme (3.5yrs) and Ari (1.5yrs).   I’m looking forward to meeting new Commerce families and contributing to the school in a fun and positive way.  This is my first time on the PTA board, but have volunteered in class and helped with many PTA functions.

In my free time, I like to spend time with my family, run and be outdoors.  I also teach fitness classes at Body Language in Union Lake.  My giant picture is on the front of the building!

VP OF COMMUNICATIONS, ANDI PAREL

Hello everyone! I am thrilled to be a part of  Commerce Elementary School’s PTA board!  I have lived in Commerce Township for 12 years with my husband Brian and two daughters; Jillian (4th Grade) and Elana (3rd Grade) who LOVE our school!  Being active and involved in our school is the best.  I have co-chaired the Fall Fair for the past 5 years and have also planned Dad’s Bingo Night the past 2 years.

In my free time (ha!) I work in Advertising/Marketing.  I also enjoy volunteering with my family for a few local charities we are passionate about, traveling and cheering on our Spartans!  Go green go white!

I am looking forward to a great school year!

My name is Jillian Moutafis and this will be my sixth year on our fabulous PTA board. I have three amazing daughters, two of them are at Commerce; Lexi (3rd grade) and Sophie (1st grade). My oldest, Chloe, graduated from Commerce last year and is now at Clifford Smart. I’ve held several positions on the board over the past six years including President, VP, and Event Coordinator. I’m thrilled to be helping this year as our VP of Fundraising. The Commerce community is a truly special one, and I feel blessed to be a part of this remarkable school.

VP OF EVENTS, CRYSTAL DARLING

Hello, my name is Chrystal Darling!  I have 4 Children and 3 of them attend Commerce Elementary school.  I have a 5th grader named Brycen, a 3rd grader named Grayson, a 2nd grader named Makenna and a 4 year old starting preschool in the fall.
I have been a stay at home mom for the last 11 years.  Since My youngest of 4 is starting school in the fall joining the PTA board was my next step so that I could be actively involved in my children’s school.  I’m looking forward to meeting many new families and having an active role in enriching my children’s education.  This is my very first position on the PTA.  I am also chairing the Color run for the first time which I am very excited about!
My absolute favorite thing to do is camping with my family and friends.  We make the best memories swimming, fishing, sitting by a camp fire and enjoying so many other fun activities.

I have three boys – Lucas, who is entering third grade; Henry, who is entering kindergarten; and Nick, who is entering college!  A little about me…in my free time I enjoy taking ballet and Pilates classes, reading, cooking, and traveling to the ocean.
