Skokie Washburne Parents

PTO Committee Sign Ups 2021/2022

We encourage all parents to get involved in the Skokie Washburne Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) for the 2021-22 school year! 

The PTO supports the Skokie Washburne school community through fundraising and volunteer efforts that provide student enrichment programs, staff development, family programming, teacher grants and numerous other resources. 

The PTO is overseen by an Executive Board and is comprised of numerous committees for which we are seeking volunteers. Much of the committee work is flexible and can be done on your own time. We are grateful for the time and effort parents put into these committees! 

We hope you find a few ways to connect with our school community through the opportunities listed here. We are really excited to bring back many of the school activities and traditions for the 2021-2022 school year. So don't be shy - please sign up  to make this an incredible school year for everyone.  

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