We want YOU to be our next PTO president! We’re looking for a creative problem-solver who is comfortable delegating and who can help us focus on the agenda instead of talking about our kids or the latest episode of This Is Us. A sense of humor is a big plus—and if you know how to say “no” without provoking a tantrum, even better. If you’re ready to play a substantial role in supporting our school, we want to hear from you!
Vice President So you’d like to get more involved in the school parent group, but you’re not sure you’re ready to take the lead role? Our vice president position has your name written all over it! You’ll learn behind-the-scenes intel and be part of decision-making on important issues throughout the year. You’ll help the president get things done.
Secretary Be honest—you’re the one in your friend group who filled out every page in your child’s baby book...at the right time, no less. If you’re the kind of person who documents everything, from your toddler’s first steps to how far you jogged yesterday, we have the perfect role for you. You’ll get to put your stellar recordkeeping skills and attention to detail to good use as our PTO secretary. You must have good listening and computer skills.
Fundraising Coordinator Our parent group does a lot more than fundraising, but let’s face it, without fundraising, we wouldn’t be able to do much. We’re seeking an upbeat, detail-oriented parent to coordinate our fundraising efforts this year. The ideal candidate is able to motivate students and parents, can think on her feet, and can handle last-minute surprises.
We have big plans to raise money and fund important projects for our school, and we need someone who likes to count every penny to help us do it. If you secretly love to categorize expenses and create color-coded pie charts, you have what it takes to be our PTO treasurer.
Are you a people person who isn’t afraid to strike up a conversation with a stranger? We’re looking for a volunteer coordinator to recruit helpers for PTO programs and events and to help parents find the best way to plug in to our school community. If you are enthusiastic (without being high-pressure) and understanding of parents’ many time constraints, raise your hand and help us do even more great things for our school!
