GO PTO Special Announcements & Volunteer Opportunities

Join the GO PTO Board

Serving on the GO PTO Board gives you a direct say in the daily decisions we make to support our staff and students. Also, GOPTO is refreshingly low-key compared to Elementary. We fundraise for staff appreciation, supply stipends, classroom grants, occassional enrichment and school events subsidy, but at the middle school level we are not responsible for planning field trips, community events, school pictures, or the yearbook - that is all done by the administration.

Open Board Positions for 2022-2023

  • Vice President - shares duties with the President like running meetings, fielding requests from the Administration, keeping the board informed of necessary agenda items, etc.

  • Tech Coordinator - Google Apps admin (keyholder for login, password, etc; this is where we house our docs, files, and GOTPO email addresses). Website admin (be the keyholder for login, password, etc). Experience with GoogleApps would be helpful, but not required; former admin can give you a tutorial.

  • Members-at-Large - These are members of the governing board who do not hold a named officer position, but attend most meetings (1st Tuesday of the month @7pm), and assist with special projects as needed. It's another great way to be involved and help make decisions without having to commit to a specific role.

Additional Needs for 2022-2023

  • Newsletter Editor(s) - the Communications Chair is looking to train up a few people to take on the newsletter. The newsletter is created in Mailchimp, and all that's required is adding new content to the pre-existing template each week (the newsletter goes out every Monday).

  • Treasurer(s) In-Training - shadow the current 2 co-treasurers in preparation to take the role on entirely in fall of 2023. The primary tasks of the GOPTO treasurers is to approve and pay out teachers' supply stipends and grant requests, give monthly fundraising and budget reports, admin our Paypal and CheddarUp accounts, and file our taxes (whcih are fairly simple).
