PTO Volunteer Positions Still Available 2012-13

First of all, I can't thank you all enough for being so willing to volunteer. When I was first asked about becoming PTO President, I was extremely apprehensive. I wasn't sure I could do it, but I feel really strongly about supporting my kids and being involved with their educations. We have almost our entire board filled, within a week, and I am so happy to be working with those of you who have stepped up and decided to support your kids, our teachers and me. THANK YOU will never be enough.

We are creating some new clubs for next year. If you'd have one you'd like to run, we are considering ideas now. As of March 1, 2012 we have the following positions open for next school year:

Evening of the Arts- since we are a PTO and not a PTA we aren't able to hold the official "Reflections" contest, so this is our version. This event takes place in the spring and is usually a combined Visual Arts and Performing Arts night. We need two people to be in charge of coordinating the date with the principal, getting the word out to parents and finding judges to help with the event. Refreshments are also served.

Main Bulletin Board- decorating and updating the events calendar on the PTO board in the main hall. This is a monthly or bi-monthly duty.

Jump Club- this is a new club this upcoming year, but we thought it would be fun to do 2 groups, one older and one younger, depending on interest, and teach the kids jump roping skills. We aren't sure of the full details yet, but we are looking for a chair to help form this club.

Math Club- this is a currently running program, helping kids who excel in math.

Chess Club- this is a new club this year, open to all ages and held during lunchtime. You don't need to know how to play chess, and supplies/ information is provided. We have Jennifer Edwards as our school liaison and need a chair to organize volunteers and eventually, tournaments with other local schools.

If you are interested in any of the above positions, please email President Elect Katie Larsen ( and she can provide further details.
