Dear Ed Smith School Community,
As the school year draws to a close, so does the terms of our PTO Board Members. We are seeking replacements for the following positions: (Co) Presidents, (Co) Vice Presidents, Treasurer, Recording Secretary and Corresponding Secretary. Please read the attached description of the responsibilities of each position and consider volunteering. Nominations can be submitted to the Co-Presidents and Nominating Committee by the May 7th PTO Meeting. Elections will be held at the final PTO meeting in June. We have two parents who have expressed interest in the Treasurer and Corresponding Secretary positions: let’s help them out by encouraging others to take on the remaining, equally satisfying roles.
If you have questions or would like additional information re: the positions, please contact the current representatives.

We all agree it has been an honor and a pleasure to serve with each other and the Ed Smith School community. The job has rewarded us with new friends, a higher level of involvement in our children’s school environment, a greater appreciation for the work of administrators, teachers and staff and a broader understanding of the educational process. We leave with a sense of accomplishment and entrust the Board to a next set of officers. We highly encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to serve and submit your name as a nominee. The PTO Board and the committed families who actively support them, help make possible field trips, school improvements (i.e. sound system a few years back), the carnival, science fair contributions, and many other events and activities that make your child’s educational experience at Ed. Smith arguably better.
Please consider stepping up–we both need and value your help.
Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!
