A message from your PTO – we need you to volunteer!


THANK YOU! We’re excited to announce that all Homeroom Parent positions for K-8 are FILLED!  A great big thank you to all of the wonderful moms who have taken on this important role.  We would like to invite our preschool parents to contact us to serve as homeroom parents for Pre-K 3 and Pre-K 4.

CALLING ALL PARENTS. We have many more opportunities for you to invest in our wonderful school and make a difference in the lives of our students.   Please take a moment to look over the open positions; pull out your calendar and see what works for you.  If you are worried that you don’t have enough time to commit to a position, you are welcome to choose a friend and split the position.  There is something for everyone and we need many hands to accomplish a school year of activities
