Committee Chair Openings - Need Your Help! 
 


Below is a list of the PTO Committees many with openings for Chairperson for 2011-2012. Please take a moment to look at the list and consider being a Chairperson. We will be seeking volunteers for individual committees at a later date.

Although there are some committees that are large and take more time to manage than others, there are also some very small-scale committees that don’t require as much from a Chairperson.
 
If you have any questions or are interested in becoming a Chairperson for next year, please email Amy Kimball at amykimball123@gmail.com.
