    Room Parents

    A fun way to get involved in your child’s classroom. You are the direct communication liaison between the PTO, teacher, and classroom parents. You will also assist the teacher as needed with special classroom events. This can be a co-parent job.


    Fall Festival

    Our BIG family event -- an outdoor family and community event with live music, farmers market, games, food booths, dunk tank, train rides, crafts, prizes, raffle, slides, bounce houses and more!!!

    This requires a lot of parent volunteers and is a lot of fun to work on.


    Bucks for Bobcats – Pledge-drive fundraiser

    A pledge-drive replacing the retail driven fundraisers (e.g., gift wrap sale, bulb sale, etc.)

    of previous years.  Parents and the community have the opportunity to give 100% of their donations directly to the school.


    Staff Appreciation Luncheon

    Teachers and staff are honored and thanked for their hard work.  The PTO prepares a delicious lunch as well as provides parent playground supervision so that the entire staff can attend.
