We need people like you to chair and serve on various committees for next school year. There are a variety of positions and levels of commitment: some big, some small, some at school, some at home. Please complete the PTO Volunteer Form and return it to school before Spring Break. Click below for the form. If you’d like to talk or have questions, please contact us at Without help, we will have to cut programs that have been offered in the past.
