Hello, my name is Diana Lehmann, Co-President, and Treasurer. My son Elias is in the Fourth grade. I joined PTO when Elias was in Kindergarten. This will be my FIFTH year on the PTO board. I also have a 4-year-old daughter, Isabella, who is in PreK.
This year, I will work closely with Ann Tierney, Co-President, to help execute many of the programs we offer to our students. I will also work closely with Deirdre Georgoudis, Director of Finance.
Please reach out with any questions, comments or concerns at FitzGeraldPTO@gmail.com.
Hello! I’m Ann, PTO Co-President. My daughter, Elizabeth, is in the 4th grade and I’ve had the joy of volunteering with the wonderful parents on the PTO since she was in kindergarten. I am so excited to volunteer again this year with my co-president, Diana and the rest of the amazing board. Our goal is to bring as many exciting events, easy fundraisers, enrichment activities, etc, to our fabulous Fitzgerald community as we can. I am looking forward to meeting and collaborating with as many parents as I can this year!

Hi, I’m Chesley, and this is my second year as the PTO’s secretary. In addition to my favorite job as a Fitzy parent of third-grader Eloise, I’m a high-school Special-Education teacher who loves bringing Star Wars, Minecraft, and other pop-culture my students enjoy into my lessons. My husband, Eric, and I are passionate about including all learners in our schools and communities, and Trunk-or-Treat is our favorite PTO event (you can find Eric dressed as Sasquatch each year).
