We Can't Do It Without YOU!

We need your help at our PTO Events!  The school benefits from your participation, and so do you in many ways:

  • Families enjoy being together at events
  • Your children will be proud of you for participating 
  • You become more involved in the school
  • You get to know a wider circle of teachers and families
  • Children whose parents are involved in their education, perform better academically

A list and description of our Volunteer opportunities are below.  If you are ready to volunteer, you must be a registered PTO member - go here to register: https://tinyurl.com/3jtrjs2r
