• Volunteer Opportunities

    The following is a list of the PTO-sponsored events for the school year. 
     
    Note: Volunteer opportunities and time slots are organized within an online application called Sign Up Genius. Look for each events' Sign Up Genius page to be
    communicated to you via email, text and/or Facebook directly from the school (according to the communication preferences you established at the beginning of the year).
