2018-2019 Prospect PTO Volunteers

2018-2019 Prospect PTO Committee Volunteer Signup

One of the many special qualities of Prospect School is the tremendous volunteer spirit of our parents. We endeavor to build our school community and enhance the educational experience for our children.

 

Prospect School offers a numerous variety of volunteer opportunities ranging from one-day events to ongoing commitments, occurring during school hours and/or evening hours, and that can be done from home or take place in school.

 

Under each committee we have provided a short description. For more information on each committee, please visit our Prospect PTO website at www.prospectschoolpto.org.

 

Please contact Shannon Matricaria or Samantha Lindenmeyer at [email protected] with questions or new ideas for next year!

 

We look forward to another wonderful school year!
