VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR PTO

~A FEW MINUTES OF YOUR TIME PLEASE~

We are always looking for volunteers!

The PTO sponsors many programs and events throughout the school year. The success of these programs is a direct result of the time, energy, and dedication of the teacher and parent volunteers. Remember, PTO is not a "moms only" organization. Dads, grandparents, and extended family can also join in the fun. Any contribution made, whether big or small, makes Atkinson Elementary a better place for our children and community.
