It is more important than ever in these chaotic times that we have a strong and connected community. The PTO has big ideas for how to keep our community bonded, but we need help! Please take a few minutes to review some of the volunteer options below and let us know if you may be able to share some of your time. Some of these roles may look a little different to returning parents than in prior years as we focus on supporting the school community as much as possible in the days ahead.

Emailing or signing up on MTK is not a firm commitment but rather an expression of interest. Once we have an indication of people’s interests we will contact interested people with specific details and likely some additional opportunities, including new roles not listed here but which families may suggest over the next few weeks.

Please feel free to contact our PTO co-presidents at masonricepto@gmail.com or check the volunteer signup at https://masonricepto.membershiptoolkit.com/volunteer/32403 at any time to learn more.
