Welcome to the Harmony School of Advancement PTO! We are so excited that so many families signed up to be a part of the PTO this year.
There are lots of opportunities to get involved with the school and the PTO. For example, we have a few empty PTO board positions that we would like to fill. These positions are Assistant Treasurer, Volunteer Liaison, Parliamentarian and Hospitality Coordinator. Descriptions of these positions are included at the bottom of this message. If you are interested in filling one of these positions, please email the board at [email protected]
Three of our board members will be leaving at the end of this school year as their children will be graduating in 2016, so it is important that we fill these four positions so that the PTO will continue to be a strong part of the school.
We are interested in hearing from you all on PTO meeting days and time. We’ve heard suggestions that we move the meetings to 8:00 AM to make it more convenient. Please vote for your preferred day and time via the Google Survey at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1YToi1cW90PA49pP4B5FbBBFcWB-VWvwZvOcMyzkbd-M/viewform?c=0&w=1.
We will compile the day and time preferences and then schedule a PTO general meeting for after the Labor Day holiday.
