Coulson Tough PTO Board and Committee Nominations for 2021-2022 It’s time to start preparing for the 2021-2022 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.
