There are many ways in which you can support the school community and PTO, while still working full or part time. We realize life is busy and overwhelming at times, so committing to a regular gig can seem intimidating. We try to schedule far enough out so you can attend a class party or event if your schedule allows. We also have needs that you can do from the comfort of your own home computer. Here are some of the ways you can help!
Tech/Computer/Home Focused: Graphic Design Photography (some onsite picture taking if possible) Or just editing Sign-up Genius, (online volunteer sign-up...we can teach you) Facebook Postings Calendar Event Updates via Facebook & Google Calendar Newsletter Writing and/or Editing Website Updates, (we can teach you Weebly!)

Attend: Drop in for our day or evening PTO meetings. (see calendar for dates) Volunteer for one of our 4 class parties: Halloween, Holiday, Valentines Day, & last day of school celebration. Volunteer or attend an evening event such as: Fun Fair, Book Fair, Daddy/Daughter Dance, Mother/Son Bowling Event, Bingo Night, McTeacher Night, Variety Show, and 8th Grade Dinner Dance.
Give: Collect Box Tops...have your neighbors, Grandparents, and friends help as well! Send in extra supplies throughout the year. Not sure which ones? Ask your teacher for ideas!
