Join the PTO Board or Volunteer

See our board members and open positions, and check out our current volunteer opportunities. We also have subcommittees that allow parents/caregivers to work on specific causes or assist specific board members, or perhaps you have a cause in mind that you wish to take the lead on. The best way to find out what our needs are or bring an idea forward, is to email us or come to a meeting.

School Communications


PowerSchool is the system the district uses to create school schedules, manage attendance, issue grades, and course selection, and most importantly send email communications from principals, teachers, and administration. If you suspect that you are not receiving principal and district emails:

  • Make sure that your profile and contact information (email address especially) in PowerSchool profile is up to date. If the portal is closed contact your school's Adminstrative Assistant.

  • Add and to your safe senders list to prevent the messages from going to junk/spam.

  • If you are using Gmail, take the extra step of setting up a filter that sends messages from and to go to your Primary folder (Gmail has a habit of sending to Promotions).
