Our parent leadership is what keeps our community strong and allows us to continuously improve the education we deliver to our kids.  We are extremely fortunate to have so many parents that help out in all aspects of our school.  Argonne’s parent involvement has increased our fundraising capability,  and allows us to to provide our children with the extracurricular programming and special academic support they deserve.  Most importantly it defines the culture of our school community as one that works together to achieve our goals.

Thank you to all of you who are involved and bring so much energy and talent to our school. We encourage new parents and anyone who has not yet been able to participate to join us!  We have a lot of fun and enjoy our success in working together.

PTO OPPORTUNITIES

Each year we welcome additional parents to join us and become more involved our PTO. The PTO is seeking people who are willing to train in the following areas to support our organization:

Communications — We want to make sure we are communicating with each other effectively. This includes helping publish a weekly (mostly on-line) newsletter, managing our Argonne website, keeping family database up-to-date and other communication strategies.

Technology — We are working to better integrate our new computer lab and technology with grade-level appropriate curriculum in the classroom. We are looking for parents with Macintosh administration skills to help on an ongoing basis to help the lab running smoothly

Fundraising/Resource Development — Join our parent volunteers who help us pursue grants, develop partnerships and fund-raise. This includes the giving letter, Mayfair and all the other new ideas we can deploy next year to increase our goals! We have a great crew that works tirelessly for our school, but they can always use an extra pair of hands….

Multi-Cultural Committee (ELAC) – Beyond advising the school in it’s English Language Acquisition Program, the Multi-Cultural Committee sponsors events that engage our diverse community. The Lunar New Year Celebration is one of Argonne’s favorite events.

Programming — We need committed parent volunteers willing to help us plan special programs and events.

Volunteer coordinating — Join our committed parent volunteer coordinators to help us recruit and track parent volunteers to make sure we leverage all the resources available and have us organized and ready for any activity that needs a pair of hands!

Green Argonne — Help out with our schoolyard initiative that includes beautification, greening, and providing healthy choices for our school.
