Volunteer Opportunities

"Children whose parents are actively involved in their education are more likely to succeed. Volunteering in your child’s school is one of the best ways to be involved. It can improve your child’s experience and also make a difference in the lives of many other children."
- Elizabeth Sellers, eduguide.com

Board Elections

The Board is an elected slate of volunteers who facilitate the day-to-day operations of the Organization as a whole. Elections are held once a year, in May for four offices: President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary. The MSR PTO encourages a diverse group of parents to serve on the Board! If you are interested in helping to make the decisions that drive our PTO by becoming an officer, please contact our current President.

You’ll find contact information, a brief description of each committee, and individual events you might like to help with! Or, feel free to contact a Committee Chair directly for more information.
