PTO Volunteer Initiative
One of the goals the new PTO Board has is to increase our number of volunteers, and we added an additional incentive to those who volunteer. A $25 gift card to a local business will be given to one volunteer at each PTO meeting, done randomly through a drawing. Jenna Macek was our second winner and received a $25 Gift Certificate donated by Five Crows. Congratulations Jenna! All the events and programs we run throughout the course of the year are dependant on YOU stepping forward and helping. For each event you volunteer at you are given 1 chance in the drawing. For each leadership role you take on, you get 10 chances in the drawing! If you are interested in volunteering, but don’t know how, please contact us email@example.com. May the odds be ever in your favor!
