PTO Openings for the 2019-2020 School Year
PTO has a variety of opportunities for you to get involved in school activities. No matter what event catches your eye, you will not be left to figure it out on your own! We have fantastic directions of what needs to be done when and at least one person to help get you up and running. Want to get involved but not sure what would be a good fit for you? Just ask! We have opportunities to meet any time commitment.
Book Fair Coordinators: Book Fair is scheduled during parent teacher conferences in the fall and spring. Co-chairs coordinate with Scholastic to plan, decorate, and run the fair. At least one of the chairs needs to be available during the day.
Hospitality Coordinator: This person gets to show Horizon teachers and staff how much they are appreciated! You will coordinate conference meals (1 in the fall, 1 in the spring), special snack/gifts during Teacher Appreciation Week, and anything else you’d like!
Walkathon Committee: This committee is active in the late summer/ fall coordinating Horizon’s only direct-donation fundraiser. This committee needs a chairperson or co-chairs who can plan the event. Many people are available to assist with tasks!!
Bingo Coordinator: This person coordinates the annual Bingo family night. This is generally held the first Friday of March. Kohls volunteers and Silver Cord students provide much of the volunteer help that evening. This is a favorite event for many of our Horizon families!
Fine Arts Night Coordinator: This person works with Horizon’s art teachers to provide volunteers for a craft project (if any) and a snack. This event happens in May.
Ice Cream Social Coordinator: This person coordinates the ice cream social that takes place during meet the teacher a couple of days before the school year starts.
Garden Committee: This committee will be responsible for maintaining the Learning Garden (East side of the building facing the playground) and the Butterfly Garden (middle of school near the cafeteria). In the past, these gardens were maintained by two parents. The goal would be to have a larger committee to make it a lighter workload for all. We are also seeing input from other sources (Master Gardeners, etc.)
