UHS PTO Committee Chair Positions Available:

Are you looking to get involved? Then we hope we have the positions for you!...

1)     The UHS PTO is looking to fill the newly created position of a PTO Public Relations person. This person would be responsible for compiling pictures and write ups from the UHS Committee Chairs about their events, people served and money raised. We are hoping to raise awareness of what great work gets done each year under the blanket of the UHS PTO. We are envisioning a quarterly standalone enews (and possible submission to local new outlets such as the Unionville Times, the Kennett Paper etc.)  that showcases the hard work and dedication of the UHS PTO through photographs and write-ups. This is an opportunity for a creative person to take this idea and run with it. The UHS PTO Exec Board will discuss with you the idea we are looking to implement and then you are free to take this and run with it in whatever way you think is best.

2)     We are also in need of a passive fundraising chairperson to identify, set up and promote passive fundraising opportunities for the UHS PTO such as the Giant store card program etc. We currently do not have a chairperson leading this effort and are already missing out on revenue we could be earning this school year.

Thank you for considering offering your time and talents to help us fill these two important positions!

Please contact Kim Lauder at kimlauder@verizon.net or Luci McClure at luci.mcclure@gmail.com to express interest in or ask questions about these two opportunities.
