All of these business names are listed on the back of the t-shirt. Go Bombers!


By Barnum PTO on 8/5/2015
As you know, the PTO often looks to parent volunteers to help make our events a success. This year, we will be using a website called SignUpGenius to coordinate volunteer opportunities for both PTO and School events. If you are interested in volunteering, you will simply provide us your email address to receive the notifications. When we have a need we will send an email blast to all the collected email addresses. Once you’ve signed up as a volunteer, SignUpGenius even sends out helpful reminders to keep the event fresh in your mind in the days leading up to your participation. Pick up email address submission forms at all our upcoming PTO events or sign up here.
