PTO Open Board Positions

We are looking for dedicated volunteers to fill open positions in our PTO Board starting in June 2021.


Term June 2021- June 2023. The new co-chair will work along side the current co-chair Haley Bush during the 2021-2022 Academic Year, learning how the PTO is run, and then continue for a second year passing on knowledge to the next co-chair. The co-chairs collaborate to produce a strategic plan and budget, coordinate volunteers, communicate with members and partner with building Principals, Teachers and the district Superintendent to facilitate the mission. Estimated time commitment = 1-4 hours per week. 


This volunteer is responsible for collaborating with the executive board, attending PTO meetings and producing meeting minutes. Estimated time commitment = 1-3 hours per month.


Apprentice along side our two current Treasurers to learn the ropes of our non-profit organization. You would not have any direct responsibilities at the start, but would gradually transition into the Treasurer role. Estimated time commitment = 1-2 hours per month.

Please contact Haley & Janelle at if you are interested in any of these roles. We look forward to hearing from you!

Like to be involved but are not sure what role would be a good fit? We have volunteer opportunities for all whether you have 1 hour or 100 hours. Send us an email and we can give you some options!


~Thank you to our Science Fair Committee: Paula Wang, Eric Swart and Sara Salvador. We are so impressed at how you made a virtual experience so fun for all!

~Thank you to all the students who participated in our Science Fair. You did a really excellent job presenting your thinking.
