Dear Carlisle Families,

I am honored to be the Carlisle Elementary PTA president for the 2017-2018 school year. I truly believe Carlisle is blessed with the best teachers and community in all of PISD. We have a wonderful Principal, Dr. Patrick, who lets her passion for the students and the school shine bright, and I am extremely grateful for all she does, for every child, every day.


My name is Kristen Harner; I have been a public school teacher in Charleston, SC and Plano, TX and understand the importance of an active parental environment within our schools.  My husband, Matt, and I have two children attending Carlisle this year: Lindsey will be in kindergarten and Lucas will be in second grade.  We also have a future coyote, a two-year-old name Wyatt.  


I know that, just like me, you are very busy raising your family and juggling day to day responsibilities. Please know that signing up to become a PTA member does not mean you are expected to spend any required amount of time volunteering or that you have to show up at every meeting. We understand that is just not possible for many parents. Joining is simply an act of support. By putting your name on the membership list, it enables us to keep you “in the loop” and allows you to be able to volunteer as much or as little as you would like.



Kristen Harner
