2021-2022 Committee Volunteer Opportunities

Monroe School PTO sponsors a wide variety of activities to enrich the environment at Monroe School.  These committees do not work without the involvement of numerous volunteers.  We are thankful to have a highly supportive and involved community of parents & hope that you will consider volunteering next year.  

We appreciate all levels of involvement.  It is also a great way to connect with the school and meet other parents.  If you have any questions, please contact Megan Maduri or Tamsyn Pequet at: [email protected]

**Please indicate if you are or would like to be a chairperson**
