About Us

Rhonda Schenk, President

I am Rhonda Schenk. I have two children, a 4th grader at C3 and a 6th grader at Merrill. I have been involved in PTSA for the past 5 years as the Box Tops coordinator, book fair coordinator, vice president and now president. I am so blessed to be an active part of C3's PTSA! My strengths that I bring are community development and the desire to try new ideas. Being a part of the PTSA has given me an avenue to have an ongoing investment in my children's education. It is the catalyst that provides me an opportunity to make an impact within our school community. I am thankful for that and for the true friendships that have developed along the way.

Monica Hemmert, Vice President

I am Monica Hemmert. I have two children, a 1st grader and a 4th grader. I have been actively involved with the PTSA for three years and enjoy being a positive, heart-centered leader for the C3 community. As vice president, I assist the president in all areas of PTSA business. I bring over 15 years of relationship, event, and project management expertise to PTSA initiatives, campaigns, and projects and am so grateful for the opportunity to serve the C3 students, teachers, staff, and families.


Susan Grisinger, Secretary

I am Susan Grisinger. I have a 3rd grader and a 6th grader at Merrill. I have been involved with the C3 PTSA for the last 6 years. We chose C3 for our children because of the collaborative learning and unique community that makes this school so special and the C3 PTSA plays a large role in making that happen. I have worked on the Great Create for 2 years and spent several years helping in the classroom as a room parent. I look forward to being the PSTA Secretary this year and being involved in the ongoing work supporting our amazing community.


I am Sarah Keepers. I have son beginning kindergarten and a second grade daughter at C3. This is my third year to be involved in the PTSA, and I'm excited to be in the Treasurer role. I am a CPA by background, and I love spreadsheets and numbers, so when this position opened up, I decided to put my talents to good use to help support our wonderful school. I'm looking forward to building on the great work that has been done by the people who were in this position before me, and am thankful to be part of this truly special community!
