Help Wanted:

THE PTO NEEDS YOU: 
Some of these positions can be done from home, others require a bit more time, so please consider saying YES! 

MONDAY BULLETIN AND SOCIAL MEDIA: Do you love communication, social media, and have an eye for details? The PTO is looking for a parent to take over the role of how we communicate for the 2018-2019 school year and beyond. This can completely be done from home and includes knowing how to use Mailchimp, Facebook, and Twitter. If you’re interested, please email [email protected].

PTO SECRETARY: The PTO Executive Committee is seeking a Secretary for the start of the 2018-2019 school year. The Secretary is a 3 year term and the position includes both record keeping and communication. The Secretary records the meeting minutes at the Executive Committee meeting each Monday, and records and distributes the minutes at general PTO Board meetings. The Secretary also helps recruit committee chairpersons, and help keep the calendar of events for the PTO. If you think this may be the right fit for you, please email the pto: [email protected].

PTO CO-CHAIR: The PTO is currently seeking a third co-chair for the 2018-2019 school year. Alice Speck is rolling off the Executive Committee at the end of the school year after 3 years of service. (Thanks Alice!) The new co-chair will work with Ryan Garms, and Patricia Salic as co-chairs, and Marina Burdenko as Treasurer. The co-chair position isn’t as daunting as it may seem. The main details are: we meet every Monday of the school year from 8-9am, have a handful of general board meetings throughout the year, raise money during our annual Family Giving Campaign, give away money to teachers through our grant process twice per year, and make decision about our PTO run programs and events that happen throughout the year. The position of co-chair is a 3 year term. If you think this may be the right fit for you, please email the pto: [email protected].

IMMEDIATELY IN NEED OF A DASA COORDINATOR: We need someone to organize and manage DASA (Driscoll After School Activities)!  We are looking for two people to work along side eachother to coordinate introductory after school programs and be the liaison between instructor, Driscoll parents and children.  Some tasks would include web site input, spread sheets, and advertising. Our Spring DASA session is beginning very soon, and we’d like to get someone lined up to shadow the current DASA coordinator. If you think this may be the right fit for you, please email the pto: [email protected].

THE SPRING FAIR NEEDS YOU: The Spring Fair team is seeking an additional co-chair to join them! The Spring Fair co-chairs will be organizing a $25,000 single day event that hosts 800-1,200 people. They will need to coordinate with multiple vendors as well as city and school district agencies. They must plan for, order, and purchase supplies in advance. They will also need to organize and manage 400-500 volunteer hours before, during, and after the event.  Close collaboration with school staff at multiple levels and the PTO board is a must. Some experience with fundraising and event planning is helpful, but not essential. The planning and organization starts in January each year, but can be managed by e-mail, phone calls, and a monthly planning board meeting until late April. May can get extremely busy. Keep in mind the co-chairs will need at least two full weekdays away from work the week of the fair – the event date and the rain date. Taking a third day off helps your sanity but isn’t totally critical. :) If you are heavily involved with coaching or managing a spring sport, this probably isn’t for you, but if you are really interested in doing both, we certainly wouldn’t say no! Say yes! [email protected].
