PTO Members Needed!
We are always actively looking for more Chehalem grown-ups to lend a hand! If you are looking for a way to help support our wonderful school community while also having fun, we would love to have you on our team. We are a low-pressure group of parents and guardians who understand that life is busy, but many hands make light work. Please attend one of our monthly meetings to learn more about what we do, why we do it, and how you can join us! Or reach out to any of our current board members for a no pressure introduction to the Chehalem PTO. Whether you volunteer a little or a lot, every bit helps keep Chehalem’s community alive!

Open Board Positions:
President-in-Training – Our current President will be stepping down at the end of the 2022-2023 (current) school year. We are seeking one or more people willing to shadow the current President and take it on the position for the 2023-2024 year. The PTO President oversees the board, leads monthly PTO meetings (writes up agendas), communicates directly with school staff to coordinate events, helps the board in any capacity needed, signs checks, and more.
Treasurer-in-Training – Our current Treasurer will be stepping down at the end of the 2023-2024 (next) school year. We are seeking someone to shadow and train with the current Treasurer and take on the position for the 2024-2025 year. This role includes the use of Quickbooks to manage income, expenses, and to reconcile the books. They go to the bank to deposit money, communicate with staff and board members to fulfill reimbursement needs, help to make the budget, and provide a quick report of budget-to-actual status at the monthly meetings.
If you are interested in either of the above positions, please reach out to the current board member to learn more. Primary qualifications for the roles are willingness to learn, organization skills, and desire to support the Chehalem community.
