We Need Your Help!
The Gates PTO depends on volunteers to prepare, participate, coordinate, run, organize, and help with the fun events and programs we run each year. It is a great opportunity to get involved with the Gates community, meet other parents, and have fun with your children. No matter what your schedule is like or whether you can only work a half-hour shift, your help is greatly appreciated. No experience is required. Please contact the PTO Chairs if you are interested in chairing a committee or volunteering for an event.
