2019/20 PTO COMMITTEE VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Monroe School PTO sponsors a wide variety of activities that enrich the learning and social environment at Monroe School.  These activities involve over 40 committees and hundreds of volunteers each year.  One awesome thing about Monroe is the active support of parents!  THANK YOU!  

We appreciate all levels of involvement and it's a great way to connect with the school and meet other parents.    If you have any questions please contact Jenny Boots or Sara Clary at: [email protected]
