2022/2023 Committees & Events
We are excited for a school year filled with fun events for our Pandas. 
Listed below are the various committees/events that need YOUR help to ensure they are a success.

MOST of these committees allow you to provide help on your own time. Don't worry if you work, have sports for the kids, or simply think you won't have enough time to help out. We will take as little or as much help that you are able to give. 

To learn more about each committee, scroll to the bottom of this page for details.

If you would like to join a committee to help out, please go to the Volunteer tab to sign-up. You are not limited to just one committee.
