Thoreau PTG

2018-2019 Thoreau PTG Volunteers!

The Thoreau PTG is only as strong as its volunteers and we've had an amazing crew in 2017-2018!  What is even better, many have chosen to stay on for next year!  This is a FANTASTIC opportunity for people new to volunteering for the PTG to learn from the pros before they graduate out down the road. New ideas are welcome too!  The positions below are primarily for committees in need of additional Chairs/Co-Chairs to help coordinate the many events and programs we plan for students, teachers, staff, and families every year. Our goal is to create an inclusive PTG that represents all grade levels, working parents, stay at home parents, moms and dads. Everyone is welcome and every position has the full support of the PTG along the way!  Sign up if you can help - grab a friend!! If you are hesitant to Chair, but are interested in supporting a position in some way, just let us know in the comments.  Please contact Kathleen Dohoney ([email protected]) with any questions.  Thank you!!
