2019-2020 Thoreau PTG Volunteer Sign Up

The Thoreau PTG is only as strong as its volunteers! Please help us create a supportive and engaging community in our school.  We need volunteers to help chair/co-chair and coordinate the many events and programs we plan for students, teachers, staff, and families to enjoy every year! Our goal is to create an inclusive PTG that represents all grade levels, working parents, stay at home parents, and everyone in between! Everyone is welcome (everyone must be CORI'd) and every position has the full support of the PTG along the way!  Sign up if you can help - grab a friend!!
