Rumson PTO Committees

Do you have some spare time?  If so, the PTO needs you!!  Our committees need volunteers for the school year.  Take a look and find one (or more) that interests you.  You can choose to give an hour, a week or a month.  There is something here for everyone. 

 

To volunteer, you must either sign in to your account or create a new account and pay your annual PTO membership fee on the website (fee of $25).  Click the volunteer tab and sign up for what interests you.  An email will be sent to the Chairperson and you will be contacted when your committee begins planning.  Getting involved is a great way to be part of your child's educational experience.  Thanks for helping us make this another great year for the kids!!
