Kristin Massaro-Chamberlain, President

Hello, my name is Kristina Massaro-Chamberlain and I am your new upcoming PTA President for the 2017 – 2018 school year. I am a life long resident of South River and an alumni to the school system. Currently, I am a stay at home mom and proud parent to two wonderful kids who are attending the Primary school this year, with a third child on her way. I am also a Co-Leader to my daughter’s Girl Scout Daisy Troop. When I am not at the school volunteering you can find me at my children’s seasonal sport practices.

I look forward to strengthening past achievements set forth by my predecessors and implementing new goals this upcoming school year. With your help through fundraising and volunteering, I plan on this being a successful and rewarding year for our students, faculty, and parents alike.
