The PTO is in major need of volunteers and we need your help. The link to signup is listed below. Please consider volunteering for the following events.
Picture day on March 28 from 8-11am. We only need six volunteers for this event.
Fun Night is quickly approaching on April 1 and we are still about 25 volunteers short. If we can’t find volunteers to work the games or inflatable’s we will have to close them down for the hours we can’t find help. This means from 5-6 hour we will close the bounce house, 1st and 4th grade pod games. 6-7 hour we will close bingo, the bounce house, Inflatable slide, 4th and 5th pod games, 7-8 hour we will close bingo, preschool games, Inflatable obstacle course, toddler inflatable, 1st, 3rd, and 4th grade pod games. Without these games/inflatable’s open please expect long lines for the ones that remain open. Please consider volunteering an hour of your time so we can keep everything open for our students.
As Fun Night approaches, so does this years new Fun Night Online Auction! You can view auction items already, however the Auction begins tomorrow, March 20th and closes Wednesday, March 29th. Be sure to click “Auction Info” for details. Happy Bidding!
