Supporting our school and staying connected
DID YOU KNOW...
Did you know that research shows that your child can benefit from your active involvement in his or her school? The PTO would not function without the support of our wonderful volunteers. Please consider joining the fun!
As many restrictions are being lifted, we are looking forward to rejuvenating some of our favorite Sanborn Community Events and Traditions as we focus on next year! Many of our events and roles are in need of new leadership, including most of the PTO Board, so we encourage you to get involved!
Opportunities range from full-year positions, to event-specific organizing. Some primarily require in-person involvement, while others need someone to manage scheduling and organizing from afar. Co-Chairs are always welcome if you want to volunteer with a friend!
**Essentially there are opportunities that can work with many different schedules and needs!**
If you're at all interested in a specific role, please sign up! This is NOT a guaranteed commitment, but an opportunity to learn more and find out how to get involved in a way that works best for you! If you want to learn more, are unsure about the role, or maybe want to shadow the current Chair to prepare to take over the role - just add a comment saying so. As each event gets closer, the Board will be in touch with additional information and to confirm interest and chairs!
*All events throughout the year will be subject to school district approval and CDC guidelines*
Sign-up to become a Room Parent. It is a great way to get to know your child's teacher, the kids in their class and help out without a significant commitment. As a room parent, you are a liaison between the PTO, the teacher and the other class parents. You my assist the teacher with special happenings in the classroom and you keep parents informed of these happenings and volunteer opportunities. You would also be the one to coordinate teacher and assistant gifts at the holidays, for teacher appreciation day, and at the end of year. Typically there are 2 Room Parents per classroom to share the responsibilities.
