Nominating Committee
Each year we ask our fellow parents and staff members to serve on a nominating committee in the spring. This committee will review nominations for new officers and collectively decide on a slate of candidates to recommend to the general PTO membership. Serving on this committee will involve two meetings in May/June.

All PTO Officers serve a 2-year term beginning July 1st.
