PTO Meeting & Leadership

Our next PTO meeting is on Tuesday, March 7 at 6:30 p.m. in the library.

An agenda will be shared next week.

It's not too early to think about next year's PTO leadership.

At our April 25 meeting, we need to elect the following officers:

-President (for a 2-year term)

-Secretary (for a 2-year term)

Current officers in these positions will be finishing their service to the Riverview PTO, so we are looking for new leaders!

April Wanish (VP) and Jean Schult (Treasurer) each have an additional year of service. We are happy to answer questions about any of these positions.

Spring Fest Planning

The PTO will be hosting a Spring Fest for all families on

Tuesday, May 9 from 5-7 p.m.

Have ideas for this event?

We'd love to hear them, and we need a committee to help plan and execute.

Please reach out or attend the March 7 PTO meeting if you have interest.

Have a great weekend!

-Margy and April
