In order to meet its mission, you PTO relies on active family participation. There are a wide variety of ways to get involved including:


  • Volunteering for 1-2 hours at an event such as Family Picnics, the Holiday Gift Shop, the STEAM Fair, Art Night and Field Day
  • Serving as a committee member or chairperson
  • Serving on the PTO Board


To help you find a good fit for you and your busy schedule, we've compiled descriptions of the various committees, as well as Board positions.

Volunteer and meet the families of your child's schoolmates!

Many committee positions involve work done in the evening or by email or phone, while others involve mostly volunteering on-site with your child's classmates. Time commitments vary from short-term committee positions where the work all happens in a 4-6 week timeframe (such as planning the SCRIP Fundraiser) to ongoing positions (such as Enrichment) which may entail an hour or two each month across the school year.
