Volunteer Help

The PTO has traditionally supplied parent volunteers to help staff the kitchen from 10:30-12:30. PTO program is successful because of broad parent participation.  At this time, we are not certain if parents will be allowed in the building due to COVID restrictions. However, if we are given the approval to resume having volunteers, WE WILL NEED YOU ONE DAY EACH MONTH!  Please send an email to Karan Tanenbaum (  indicating which day will be your volunteer day in this format:
