The PTSA has begun to seek volunteers to serve as chairs, co-chairs and members of the various PTSA committees for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year. These committees are instrumental in providing support to our school community and enriching the education of our students. Several of these positions require VERY LITTLE time commitment or can be done from home.

Membership Co-Chair – Conducts the PTSA Membership drive by promoting and coordinating membership tables at the Community Meet and Greets in August, Hawk Flight and Back to School Nights in September. Co-Chairs assist in compiling a membership database to ensure proper registration with the local, state, and national PTA’s. (1 volunteer)

***ALL NIGHT GRAD PARTY (ANGP) 2020 Co-Chairs – We need at least TWO parents to coordinate this event for the CLASS of 2020. The purpose of this party is to provide a safe and alcohol-free celebration for our students on graduation night in June 2020. The ANGP event has recently been held at Adventure Park, USA, near Frederick, MD. This is a critical position. ANGP Co-chairs recruit SR. parents to form an ANGP Committee and engage in planning and fundraising throughout the 2019-2020 school year. Estimated time commitment is 3-4 hours a month.
