Samuelson PTO

We are in dire need of PTO volunteers. Samuelson PTO is involved with many activities such as Walk-A-Thon, Fun Night, Go The Distance Day, 5th Grade Party, and so much more! The more volunteers we have, the more opportunities there are for your child. Help us come together as a team and make the 2019-2020  school year the best one yet!


Want to know how much time PTO board members spend on their duties each month?

The Board meets monthly during the school year, most months in person but usually by email in December and March.  The meeting is at 6 pm right before the general meeting at 6:30.  Before the meeting the President prepares the agenda and Secretary prepares the meeting minutes from the last meeting – approximately 30 minutes for each.   The Treasurer prepares the Financial report for the previous month.  This can take upto 1.5 hours, but depends on how much activity took place the previous month.

The Board also meets in August to plan the year’s activities and budget.  This meeting takes about an hour.  Before the meeting the Treasurer makes sure to complete all reports for the previous year (ending June 30) and makes sure to file the annual tax statement online.

Other time spent by the Board each month varies based on the current PTO activities.  More Board members and parent volunteers would mean less time spent on activities by the Board.
