Oak PTO

2018-2019 Oak PTO Committees

Dear Oak Parents,

Thank you for taking the time to volunteer. As you know, many events wouldn't be possible without your support.  Thank you for donating your time to make Oak great!

There are several committees still in need of chairs. If you are interested in chairing any one of those committees please contact Jennifer Rediger and Melissa Lapica at [email protected]  Any chair positions that cannot be filled will result in the absence of that event/activity during this school year.

Please note that all grade specific room parents will be filled by 2 individuals who will work together to act as communication liaisons between parents, the PTO and teachers. We will open up the sign up genius in August when teacher assignments have been provided to all students.

We appreciate your time and efforts as does the entire Oak community!

Thank you,

Jennifer & Melissa
