Supporting our school and staying connected

The Sanborn PTO works hard to help make the school year both enjoyable and exciting for students, teachers, and parents.

The PTO uses its resources, both manpower and monetary, to support the efforts of the staff and to provide learning and enrichment opportunities for our children.

In order to make it easier for everyone to know who is managing each committee and what positions are still available, read the descriptions below and then visit the new PTO Volunteer Sign-up Genius. It’s a wonderful investment that will produce lasting benefits.
