How to Get Involved

The Kohler Performing Arts Organization (PAO) needs volunteers.

The Kohler PAO is primarily a parent-run organization that depends heavily on volunteerism. You can easily join our great team of volunteers at any time. There are a variety of tasks you can do to help support our annual auction fundraiser. Simply attend our next PAO meeting. Meetings are held once a month (October-May) and are typically no longer than an hour. Upcoming PAO meetings are announced on this page, the Kohler School's Music Department's web page, and the Kohler PAO Facebook page. To learn more or ask questions, please email us at

Join us Monday, October 3, 2022, at 7 p.m.

Our next annual meeting will be held on Monday, October 3, 2022, at 7 p.m. in the band room at Kohler Schools. If you are a parent/guardian of a current band and/or choir student, please consider attending this important meeting by adding it to your calendar now.

At the annual meeting, the treasurer gives a detailed financial report, Band Director Rich Tengowski presents a helpful overview of middle school and high school student participation in the music program, and new board members are appointed for the new school year.
