New officers are elected each school year during the final two PTO meetings of the school year.

The PTO must fill all positions, in order to continue on in the 2019-2020 school year.  PTO will train anyone interested in filling these positions!

We will be accepting nominations for the following positions at our April 9th meeting: President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer.

PTO CANNOT exist without parent leadership!  Without an active PTO we cannot support our school through field trips,

special events, classroom materials, and much, much more! Please consider how you can help your school.

If you’re interested in any of these positions, please email spencepto@gmail.com.
