Many of you have already volunteered for one or more of our fabulous committees. Thank you!

We are still in need of several committee chairpersons. Chairs serve as the point person coordinating volunteers and managing the event/activity.  Regrettably, if we do not have at least one chair per committee, we risk not being able to have that activity. Check out our Volunteer SUG to see which committees need your help to ensure their success.

Open Chair Positions:

  • Turnabout Fundraiser
  • Fortnightly
  • PTO Speakers (Parent Education)
  • Publicity
  • Mascot

  • 8th Grade Graduation Dance
  • 8th Grade Graduation Lunch
