**Volunteer Opportunities

The PTO is made up of and depends on Riverside parent volunteers.  The enrichment and support we provide to our kids/teachers can't happen without many hands pitching in.  Help continue to build Riverside's rich learning environment any way you can!  As one new parent said it best,
"There isn't a better way to learn about what is going on at the Riverside School than to be part of the PTO and attend the meetings."

We have seasoned veterans and newcomers alike on our PTO!  We would love to hear ideas from families new to the Riverside Community.  Please contact Co-Presidents Beth Leman or Wendy Wilton (president@rspto.org) to find out how you can participate in a way that fits your interests and availability.

Community Outreach - assist the VP Community Outreach planning events such as Halloween Costume Drive, Unicef collection, Halloween Candy Collection for Do Something.Org, as well as Food and Personal Care Products drives.
