2018/19 PTO COMMITTEE VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Monroe School PTO sponsors a wide variety of activities designed to enhance the learning and social environment at Monroe School.  These activities involve over 40 committees and hundreds of volunteers each year.  One very special aspect of our school is the active support of parents like you!  Volunteer opportunities include one-time events or year-long commitments.  Volunteering is a great way to get involved in the school and meet other parents.  We appreciate all level of involvement.  If you have any questions please contact Jenny Driscoll or Julie Rzeppa at: [email protected]
