Volunteer Opportunities

Whether you can give 1 hour a month or 1 hour a day, the PTO needs you.  It takes a lot of volunteer hours to support our school.  Please consider giving your time when possible.  You'd be surprised how many opportunities require minimal or very flexible hours.  Download and print the Volunteer Opportunities form.
