What PTO Volunteers Are Needed For:


Please check your e-mail often for shout-outs for help from the Pennsbury High School PTO.

***Remember, you never have to have a child in the grade that is ‘asking’ for help.***

Volunteers are needed in the following areas:

  • Parent grade representatives (2 per grade)

  • Working in the coat check & food donations for 9th & 10th grade dances

  • Sports Nite (volunteering to work in the food court & spirit wear sales)

  • Prom (painting, food service, coat check, ticket sales, silverware rolling…ongoing through May)

By getting involved in school activities, the more you learn what's going on at the High School!!!


If you are interested in helping out in any of the above areas, please write it on the bottom of your registration form and we will contact you. You can also contact us directly, pennsburypto@gmail.com.

**And don't forget to add our email to your address book so we our emails don't end up in your junk/spam folder.**
