Dear Parents and Guardians,
At our recent PTO meeting, we were discussing how everyone’s lives are busy and sometimes people can’t commit to attending monthly meetings but might be interested in helping out with an event. So, we thought we would invite individuals to learn more about our events and then maybe sign up to work on one of them.
If you are interested in helping, please contact one of our PTO members: Wendi Cantwell (firstname.lastname@example.org); Nora
Foster (email@example.com); Melissa Jenness (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Megan Magrauth (email@example.com)

birthday. Use your creative spirit to build the monthly board which is located right within our main school entrance. Supplies can be provided.
