Nominations & Elections for 2017-2018

ü I want Banks Elementary to be one of the best schools in Oregon.
ü I want my child to have a great school year – to learn and to have fun!
ü I want to help decide how PTO fundraising moneys are spent.
ü I want all the students at Banks to be successful.

If the above statements are true, then “help us help the school”. Parent involvement is critical for a successful school, so volunteer as a PTO officer or a committee chair for 2017-2018.  There are jobs that take no more than a couple hours a month, some are that are seasonal, and a few that require a routine commitment.

Dedicated teachers, staff, and PARENTS help make Banks Elementary a great school! 
Join us – it’s rewarding, it’s important, it’s even fun!

Nominate yourself or someone else.  All positions can be shared. (See back of form for position descriptions.) If you have any questions, please contact Heidi at 503-473-9278.

Elections will be held at the PTO General Meeting on Wednesday, May 10th at 9:30am in the library classroom.   All candidates for officer positions must be registered with the Nominations Committee by May 5th. Please return this form to your child’s teacher or to the school office.
