We are currently seeking volunteers to fill some open positions on our PTO executive board for the 2018/19 school year. There are really no special skills required, other than a desire to help support the PTO at Wolcott School and a commitment to fulfill the position for at least one year. All parents are welcome to inquire, whether your kids will be in kindergarten or fifth grade! We can teach you everything you need to know for the job and none of them are overwhelming in terms of time or effort. Here are the positions we are looking to fill….
Co-President – 2 year commitment
Treasurer (2 open positions) – 1 year commitment
