MACS PTO supports and advocates for our children, in partnership with staff, parents, and the larger community. The PTO does this by
- Spearheading fundraising events,
- Assisting with school needs and enrichment projects, and
- Planning social activities that promote fellowship among families.
The PTO Executive Board consists of four elected positions: President, Vice President, Secretary, and Volunteer Coordinator.
- Officers, after usually being nominated at the April meeting, will be elected at the PTO Board’s May meeting.
- Ideally, Executive Board Members should serve on the PTO (at any time in the past) for a full calendar year before taking any office in order to be familiar with the activities at the school.
- Elected Executive Board officers shall serve a 2-year term.
● All Executive Board officers shall be limited to three consecutive terms (6 years) in the same office.
The President works closely with the Community Outreach Coordinator to schedule monthly PTO meetings, draft the agenda, and manage the meetings. The President will work with the MACS Executive Director to set a tentative calendar of potential PTO activity dates for the upcoming school year, to propose dates for PTO meetings, and to set the annual fundraising goal. The President shall work closely with all PTO members and the Outreach Coordinator to ensure that the annual fundraising goals are met. The President will represent the school in a positive way.
The Vice President shall assist the President, perform the duties of the President in the absence or inability of that officer to serve, and coordinate activities in conjunction with the PTO. The Vice President will represent the school in a positive way.
The Secretary shall have the overall responsibility for developing, distributing, and maintaining the meeting minutes. The minutes shall include the names of all members in attendance as well as all important dates. The secretary may also assume other duties as the PTO Board Members or the President may propose and will represent the school in a positive way.
The Volunteer Coordinator will work in conjunction with the Community Outreach Coordinator to update the volunteer form and activity log and incentivize volunteering with a recognition program (ex: family feather on falcon). The Volunteer Coordinator is also responsible for helping to recruit and manage parent volunteers when needed at school fundraising events.
*The Community Outreach Coordinator shall assist the PTO by communicating PTO meeting(s) and event information to all MACS Families, assisting the PTO President with event planning and advertising, tracking parent volunteer hours and buy-outs, recruiting and managing staff volunteers when needed at school fundraising events, helping procure donations, and providing thank you letters to community donors.
