Coulson Tough PTO Board and Committee Nominations for 2022-2023 It’s time to start preparing for the 2022-2023 school year! At this time, we would like to ask current board members whether they plan to maintain their position as well as invite everyone to consider getting involved in the Coulson Tough PTO. We have many different positions with varying levels of responsibility and time commitment, so there is sure to be something for everyone. We really do need all the volunteers we can get to make next year as successful as possible.
Please use this form to select any positions that you might be interested in filling for next school year. This is not a commitment to fill the position at this stage, but rather an indication of interest so that we may contact you and discuss details further. Positions will be voted on in May, and at that time we will transition from current board members to the new board. Position descriptions are listed below. If you have questions about the time commitment for a position or what it will involve, please email email@example.com. Please submit your nomination form by April 1, 2022.
