Event Committees for Next Year

We are also looking for volunteers to run our Box Tops Program and be our DVD Coordinator next year. The more people we have on each committee, the less work for everyone involved!

Committee positions are not PTO Board members and are an easy way to get involved with a small job on PTO to help out our amazing school! Use the Sign Up Genius link below to sign up.
