Volunteers - How can you impact our students?
PTCO is in need of volunteers for our next school year. It’s a great way to meet new parents in our community and make an impact on our students. Where can you help? What skills can you bring to the group? How can you show your child that they mean enough to you to help by getting involved and helping others? If any of these positions or committee opportunities appeal to you, please respond to this email with the area you are interested in. We will contact you to answer any questions you may have and discuss the next steps!
