Volunteer Recruitment for 2021-22
 

 

Are you interested in being actively involved in the 2021-22 PTO at the High School?

January is when we begin asking for volunteers to take on leadership roles in next year’s PTO.

 

We’d love to hear from you whether you have hours or minutes to offer. Let us know if you want to be

  • A member of the executive board
  • Chair a sub committee
  • Help out at an event
  • Or support in any other way.

 

This link will take you to descriptions of the board and chair roles with an indication of the time commitment involved. Please note, that in discussion with your VP, you can evolve your role to fit your vision - the outlines in the Google Doc are there as a guide. Wherever possible we encourage a team of two to take on any role so that you can support one another and in many cases provide some continuity or mentoring from one year to the next.

Happy New Year - 2021!

 

We wish you all a healthy and happy New Year, and hope that we can soon see this pandemic come under control so that everyone feels safe to live and learn together. For the time being all PTO events will continue to be held remotely and we will announce all meetings and webinars via this weekly newsletter, eblasts, the PTO Website and the PTO HS Facebook page. 

 

We are so grateful to all our PTO volunteers who are finding new ways to deliver their programs and fulfill their roles, and by gracefully accepting when we have had to cancel or postpone the things that cannot take place in the current circumstances. 

 

We have experienced beautiful examples of our community coming together and supporting one another this past year, and the upcoming MLK celebrations will be a perfect opportunity for us to start 2021 with positive intention. 

 

Thank you all for your patience and care,

Kate and Ramona

HS PTO Co-Presidents 2020-21
