We have a few committee openings and a few new committees we are looking for volunteers for. Please read below for more info. If you are interested in any of these committees, or have any questions, please email us at email@example.com.
Beautification Committee (Available Now): We are looking for volunteers to lead and join our newly created beautification committee. This committee will be responsible for maintaining the front planters, the courtyard garden box, and a bulletin board in the cafeteria.
Philanthropy Committee (23-24 School year): This chair works closely with the school social worker to determine the needs of the school population and determines how the PTO can best support those needs. Also coordinates donation drives throughout the year.
Adult Social Committee (23-24 School year): We are looking for volunteers to lead and join our newly created Adult Social Committee for next school year. This committee will be responsible for planning a casual 6th grade parents meet up at the beginning of the school year, and a school wide parents meet up in the Winter or Spring.
