McDowell PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) meets once a month...

Openings - Spots are always available for you to volunteer to assist a teacher outside of the classroom. Please see the principal for more information.

Next PTO meeting - Please check lunch menu.  All good things can be accomplished with many hands!  

Please stop into the school office during normal school hours to complete a NEW Volunteer Form if you plan to attend any field trips or volunteer at the school in general this school year.  Make sure to also bring in a picture ID (license or state ID) because we will need a copy of the front and back to complete the process. Most clearances take 2 weeks so complete your form as soon as possible so that you don't run into clearance issues and miss out on any activities!!
Special to note - You DO need to complete a NEW volunteer form each school year.

Many hand make light work - You could also help with school pictures, hosting events, and so much more!
