Crow Island PTO

2021-2022 Crow Island Volunteer Sign Up

We welcome all parents to get involved in the Crow Island Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) for the 2021-2022 school year.  Volunteering with the PTO is a great way to feel connected with our school community and our many school traditions, particularly as our school experience returns to some normalcy. 

The PTO manages and funds a variety of programs and events each year to develop, enhance and support Crow Island students and teachers in all aspects of the school environment. Programs run throughout the year and some are big while others are small. Whatever your commitment ability may be, there's always an opportunity to get involved and you'll enjoy being more a part of Crow Island School!

Feel free to reach out to any current Executive Board member with any specific questions or email any questions to [email protected].
