Parent Teacher Organization + School Committees
The Parent Teacher Organization helps our students thrive by providing meaningful opportunities for direct family involvement, staff support, community collaboration, and fundraising for the school. Our PTO goes by the name L’Organisation des Parents d’Élèves, (OPE) and you can contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have many parent-led committees and volunteer opportunities, all with the common goal of continuing a prosperous and positive path forward for our children and the French American School of Denver. Please contribute your time and efforts to any of these exciting initiatives - we can always use more help!
We Need Volunteers!
To make it easy to find Volunteer Opportunities and Upcoming PTO Events, our current needs are centralized on a Google Sheet with AMAZON WISH LISTS, SHORT-TERM REQUESTS, LONG-TERM VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES and UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENTS. There is undoubtedly a task to suit any time you have to give!
We ask all volunteers and committees to please
set reminders and check-ins to ensure follow-up.
(Document restricted to current families)
If you will be volunteering regularly or directly in the school with children, reach out to the volunteer coordinator email@example.com with your full name, email address and phone number, and she will direct our vendor Sterling to send you a free background link. You will also need to complete "Mandatory Reporter" training and return both that training certificate and the Volunteer Vaccination Form directly to Suzanne Acheson (firstname.lastname@example.org). Both the vaccination form and the training certificate will be reviewed either by Suzanne or her designee.
