PTO Leadership – As you are out and about with your families this spring break please take a moment and reflect on all the events that have occurred at our school this year.  Whether you thought they were terrific successes or that there were things about them that you may have done differently, we know there is always room for growth. The PTO will be looking for members of our parent community to step into the PTO board leadership and, eventually, committee leadership rolls. If you are interested in learning more about the opportunity to be part of the PTO leadership contact Christy OlsonGlenda Donato, or Sarah Coakley, or  

MEETING NOTE – Due to the fact that we will not be in school on April 2nd and that most of our attention will be focused on putting final touches on the auction, PTO will NOT be having a meeting in April. We will resume our meetings on May 7th at 6:00 pm where we will be holding our PTO board elections for the 2013-2014 school year.
