Serving on the PTSO Board is a very rewarding and fulfilling experience. Not only is it a great way to give back, but it is also a wonderful way to contribute to your child’s middle school experience. The positions on the Board are: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and Member-at-Large.
In addition, there are many volunteers required to participate in the different committees/events. Many parents are needed for the PTSO efforts to be successful. “Many hands make light work” is so true in an organization of this type. The PTSO currently has many committees available for you to share your time and talents. Whether you have a little bit or a lot of time, we have a place for you!
Should you have ANY interest in serving on the Board as an officer, serving as a chairperson, or serving as a volunteer on any of the committees, please email mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to working with you as we continue to support BRMS’ efforts to support our children!
