Join a PTSO Committee!
“We already have enough PTSO volunteers,” said no one ever.


Interested in being more involved with Caleb Greenwood next year? Join PTSO or chair a committee! 


Dedicated teachers, staff, and families help make Caleb Greenwood Elementary a great school!  Join us – it’s rewarding, it’s important, and it’s fun! There are jobs that take no more than a couple hours a month, some that are seasonal, and a few that require a routine commitment.


While a lot about the 2021-2022 school year is still unknown, PTSO is hopeful that we will be adding more community events to the calendar. All committee chair positions can be shared and the listed event dates are subject to change.


To nominate yourself or to learn more, please contact Nicole Purcell at by Friday, May 21st.
