No Time to Volunteer?

 

Can You Spare Some Time? (Any amount of time helps!)

  • Volunteer and attend our PTO sponsored events

  • Attend our general PTO Meetings to hear what’s going on and give input


Becoming a PTO member does not obligate you to volunteer, but we welcome everyone who finds they have some time to help out during the school year. We have many opportunities that may suit your schedule to be involved and contribute to our efforts.
