PCO Volunteers 2019-2020

PCO Committee Sign Ups 2020-2021

This school year will look a lot different regarding volunteer opportunities but we still need you! The biggest needs this year are: a plant sale co-chair, managing fundraisers, staff appreciation and helping with the Welcome committee (especially since we need safe opportunities to connect). The options might change as the school year evolves. 

There are a few committees that run year round but others are very limited in time commitment. We have tried to specify the expected time frame for each and give you a sense of what the time and task expectations are. Committee chairs are the point people for the PCO. The PCO will work with chairs to work on things like budget, communications, expectations and then the chairs will be responsible for the successful running of their committee.

We will be recruiting as needed for these needs throughout the year. Keep an eye out for PCO communication streams such as the Pulse and the PCO Facebook page as something new may catch your eye!

Please check off committee interests you have for the upcoming school year. For more through descriptions, read http://ecspco.org/volunteer/pco-committees/ Sign Up Genius has a max. length. Content still a bit in transition due to Covid so check back for updates!)

You will be contacted by the committee chairs (however, please follow up with [email protected] if you don't hear from someone- mistakes happen!).
