Skokie Washburne Parents

PTO Committee Sign Ups 2022/2023

Get involved in the Skokie Washburne Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) for the 2022-23 school year! 

The PTO supports the Skokie & Washburne school community by providing student enrichment and staff appreciation programs that build school spirit and a stronger sense of community, camaraderie and friendship for our entire student, parent, teacher & staff community. 

We are comprised of numerous committees that offer parent volunteers various leadership opportunities throughout the year, along with an "inside view" into the Skokie & Washburne school experience, and the flexibility to run programs on your own time! It takes many parent volunteers to run the PTO and we are incredibly grateful for the time and effort of our dedicated Skokie & Washburne parent community. 

The PTO is overseen by an Executive Board listed below. 

2022-23 PTO Executive Board

Co-Chairs - Anna Jaymont & Becky Sanderson

Vice Co-chairs - Gina Gooden & Melanie Walsh

Treasurer - Jennie Pastor / Assistant Treasurer - Anna Anderson

Communications - Suzy Eilers / Assistant Communications - Erin Sharov

Secretary - Emily Walker

Should you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us! We look forward to working with all of you!
