SOCIAL COMMITTEE
  
This year the PTO has assembled a social committee to organize a few social events for parents (and sometimes children) in the district to get together and just have some fun!  The purpose of these events is to socialize, rather than raise funds. With certain events, businesses will donate a portion of the proceeds back to the PTO, so it's a win-win. The social committee is off and running!  Introducing our first 2 social events.....
