The PTO board is currently looking for volunteers to lead the following committees next year:
Gardening Committee: Round up a group of volunteers to help clean up the flower beds! The gardening committee can meet anytime in early August to make the front of the building look fantastic! Spring clean up is as needed. This year is our year to mulch...no need to worry about ordering or delivery the PTO will do all that. Just show up to help spread!
Staff Appreciation Treats: Our staff does so much for our Bulldogs throughout the year that we want to continuously show our appreciation! Help us put together a team who will bring treats to the staff lounge once a month and stock the fridge with their favorite drinks. One committee chair needed to set up a sign up genius for monthly volunteers.
Variety Show: Leaders needed to help put together and facilitate a avaning of talent. This event typically takes place in mid-November. The team would coordinate acts, collect and review music and help students practice and move on and off stage. Event takes place in the evening at the Breton gym.
If you are interested in any of these committees and would like to help lead these groups, please contact Magda VanWingen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
