In the fall, the PTA Executive Board forms a nominating committee which fills PTA committee positions for the following school year. At this time, parents can nominate themselves for a specific job or a general interest to help support the PTA’s activities. Positions are available for all who are interested, and we welcome your involvement.
Bolton’s PTA has over 60 committees that ensure these functions and activities actually happen. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to those of you who have agreed to lead one of our PTA committees. We are very grateful for your support. We also thank all of you for your consideration to serve on one or more of the committees. We are still actively looking for all types of volunteers for the upcoming school year. Together we can make a difference in the students’ lives and education! If you are interested in leading a committee, please visit the sign-up genius to find the right fit for you. http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090f49adaa2da13-ptacommittee
If leading a committee sounds like too daunting of a commitment, but you still want to help, don’t worry, there is a job for you. The PTA is always looking for help. We will petition for volunteers throughout the year.
