PTA – Elementary School

Message from the Providence PTA

Welcome to the new school year! It’s going to be a year with a difference and we have lots of fun, family-friendly activities and events planned to keep the Providence community together even if 6 feet apart! Besides having a lot of fun, the PTA is here to support the school administration, teachers and parents to ultimately enhance the educational experience of our children. 2020 is all about thinking outside the box and we have some exciting events and activities planned, some you may recognize and some new ones. We are grateful for the support and volunteer time of so many of our parents without whom many projects and programmes would not be possible. Be sure to add our email address to your contacts to ensure that you receive our “PTA Post” which will give more information on our plans and activities as the year unfolds. E-mail: [email protected] We look forward to meeting you virtually at one of the PTA General Meetings or in person at one of the events!

Executive Chair

Arlene Quintyne

Arlene Quintyne, CPA, CA – I was born and raised in Canada, making Barbados my home since 1996.  I am a citizen of both Barbados and Canada.  Married and mother of 2 wonderful children, a 19 year old daughter and a 10 year old son.  My son is currently attending Junior 3 at Providence Elementary School.  I have volunteered in various PTA executive roles since the school’s inception in 2005.  Over the years I have been employed in various financial roles for publicly traded International Pharmaceutical Companies. I enjoy helping others, staying fit and spending time with friends and family.  I look forward to working in partnership with our principal, Ms. Stacy Altman, and our amazing teachers and staff, and I am happy to volunteer with such a talented group of energetic and caring parents and educators.
