Volunteers and Committees
Parents are a child's first and most important teachers. The most successful students are those who have the involvement of their parents, and the support from their local community. This year promises to be filled with learning and many fun activities for our students and families. Our kids need YOU to make it happen! Many volunteers are needed. There are a wide range of choices—some days, some nights, some requiring many hours, some requiring just a few. So please take a look below at the PTO committees at Babler and hopefully you will find one or more opportunities that interests you. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the VP of the committee for more information. The PTO board thanks you in advance for your help and support! Here's to a great year!
