Other Needs

Volunteer Coordinator
We need a high-energy person to help compile a list of volunteers to help us with our many programs throughout the year. As a newer group, this is a great starting point for someone to work closely with the community, staff, parents and others to "think outside the box" and help us recruit as many wonderful people as we can to have fun with us when needed :-) You would be our go-to person when we had a need for help with Field Day, Harvest Fest, etc. to ensure we have enough people to help make the event a success.

Holiday Concert Director
We are looking for someone with a love of teaching music that can lead our Grades 1-6 choir.  This person will also assist in planning and coordinating a concert with the choir in December. You do not need to be able to play an instrument, nor have formal directing experience.

Teacher & Staff Appreciation Coordinator
· Coordinates meals for Teacher Appreciation luncheons during conferences (Oct/Mar) for faculty and staff
· Coordinates teacher appreciation gifts for Teacher Appreciation Week in May & end of year gift.
· Oversees handing out birthday cards to teachers, with help of birthday card committee members.
· Recognizes personal events among the BES staff with cards or small gifts, to acknowledge such events as births, illnesses, sympathies, congratulations, or any other appropriate recognition.
· Attend monthly board meetings and assist where needed.

Paper Publicity
Are you a life-long Banks resident?  Or a parent that knows a lot about our community, it's businesses, and our neighborhoods?  We would be thrilled to hear from you...we need your creative sales/marketing personality to assist in selling advertising space to school families or local businesses (all funds would of course cover our paper costs and go towards other needs within the school) for our newsletter.  You might also have fun getting a local newspaper to publish a picture of a special event at BES.  The possibilities are endless.

Online Publicity
Much like the Paper Publicity position, you would assist with these same important tasks, yet in an on-line environment, sending interesting info, pictures, advertising possibilities, etc. to the PTO secretary to post on the blog, Facebook, etc.  Lots of room to grow in the role, and a "think outside the box" person would be wonderful - we are always open to new, innovative ideas.  Bring us your enthusiasm and we'll love you forever :-)

· Create a record of past PTO events & newsletter, in a format agreed to by the PTO board.
· Maintain the record by adding photos, keepsakes, newspaper clipping, etc. of PTO activities during year.
· Take pictures at all PTO events
· Attend monthly board meetings and assist where needed.
