Dear Aiken Families,

Thank you to everyone who has expressed interest in joining the PTO board.  We are writing because there are a two more open board positions for the 2020-2021 school year that we wanted to make you aware of, treasurer and secretary. 

Please check out the openings and descriptions listed below and email if you are interested or for more information. 

Being on the board is a great way to be more involved in deciding how the money we fundraise gets spent for the benefit of our school. 

Please keep in mind that we ask that you agree to a two year term for any position that you might be volunteering for.

Thanks for your interest!

Aiken PTO
