Without Woodstock parents getting involved we will not be able to support our wonderful teachers and school staff!
WAYS TO VOLUNTEER
Attend a Meeting
Come, listen and join in on how we can support our teachers that work hard to inspire our children! Every 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7PM in Mrs. Porter's kindergarten room. Perhaps you have some ideas that we would love to hear!
Chairing an Event
Chairing an event requires between 5-10 hours of your time on and around the event, and once the event is complete your commitment to the position is finished for the year!
The Community Liaison holds the very important role of making sure that at least one PTO member attends each public meeting that the BOF and BOE holds. Notes should be taken, and a summary of the meeting minutes should be written up. The chairperson does not need to attend every meeting him or herself, but rather, can delegate and organize a signup sheet of attendance to other PTO members.
This Chairperson’s sole responsibility is to keep the PTO informed of decisions being made in the following areas:
Board of Finance
Board of Education
Woodstock School District
