Committee Chair Sign-Up
Ocean Road Elementary School

The 2021-2022 school year is here and the PTO is getting ready for a great year!
We rely on a lot of volunteers to help with various events/fundraisers throughout the year. We are looking for some wonderful PTO members to help fill our many open “Chair” positions. This is a great way to get involved with your child's school! Regardless of whether you’re a seasoned Ocean Road School PTO member or brand new to our school community.

Please check out the many available positions and sign-up to Chair one of our excellent committees.

Any Chair positions that are not filled will result in that event/fundraiser being cancelled or postponed to the following school year.

We can always accept more than one Chair to help organize a committee. We would prefer to have two Chairs with different grade level children, to pass on responsibilities year to year.

All Committee Chairs must be a PTO member, please go to Donations to join the ORS PTO at "Membership Dues/Donation", if you are not a member already. 

All Committee Chairs are expected to attend the PTO Bi-Monthly General Meetings to report on event/fundraising efforts.
