PTO Needs your voice!
PTO runs on people power from the Wildcat community. There are many ways to participate, and the most impactful way is to hold a role that helps shape the direction of the PTO. Below are the key positions open for the 2021-2022 school year.

co-VP Of Fundraising
Do you like to plan events that also raise money? Do you have the ability to engage people and maybe sell them on the value of something?
