This Year's PTO Team

Each school year, the PTO encourages parents and caregivers to take on specific volunteer roles. No matter your interest, expertise, or the amount of time you have to give, there is a place for you on the PTO team! 

 

Volunteer opportunities range from executive board leadership roles and event chairs to remote marketing support and website admins. Most roles on the PTO only require your commitment for the current school year! If you are curious about open volunteer positions or have an idea for a new program, we'd love to talk - send us an email (pto@runklepto.org)!

 

For the 2023-2024 school year, we are still looking for several volunteers! The positions highlighted in yellow are CURRENTLY OPEN! We need your support. If you'd like to play an active part in improving our Runkle community, please email us (pto@runklepto.org):
