PTSA Help Wanted:
Check out the “Help Wanted” board outside the school office for the full list of available opportunities.
Meanwhile, we are in urgent need for the following position due to external deadlines.  If you are interested in this position, please contact us immediately.

Special Events Co-Chair
In order not to overwhelm a single person with all our special events, we divide them up between multiple people.  We have one person in place and are looking for a second person.  This person would plan and organize four school-wide PTSA special events that vary in size from large (like Trick or Treat St) to small (like hot chocolate at music event).  It is ideal for the creative, Pinterest-loving person who likes to create fun celebration for our students.  There is heavy activity 2 weeks to a month before each of the events.  Planning and meetings can be done from home and during evenings.  Occasional events happen at school either during the day or evening.
