Special Guest Speaker: Jess Ekstrom, Headbands of Hope

At the first PTA membership meeting of the year, we have a very special speaker! Announcing ... Jess Ekstrom, CEO of Headbands of Hope.


Headbands of Hope gives one headband to a child with cancer and a donation to a local cancer charity with every headband sold. Headbands have been donated to every children’s hospital in the United States. The charity has been featured on The Today Show and Good Morning America and in magazines like Women's Health, Vanity Fair and Cosmopolitan. Celebrities support the organization by wearing its headbands. For more information, check out


In 2012, Jess founded Headbands of Hope as a junior in college after interning at a wish-granting organization for kids with life-threatening illnesses. She now travels the country speaking at colleges and universities, conferences and more. She was most recently recognized by Women's Health as their 2017 Game Changer of the Year and will be appearing on the cover of Women's Health Magazine this October!  We are very lucky to have her choose Creighton’s Corner Elementary as part of her speaking tour!

Join us for our first meeting of the year! We will meet our new officers, approve the budget and talk about upcoming programs.
