Would you like to volunteer and help with your children’s school?   The Harman School PTO has many different ways and times to do that!  We greatly appreciate all of your help!

1.    Harman Trivia Night, (Save the Date for Saturday, Nov. 16!), Harman PTO’s largest (and super fun) fundraiser, is looking for more people to help our committee chairs put on a great event!  Contact Cate Berger, 2019 Harman Trivia Night Chair, at 937-789-8733.

2.    The Harman Workroom is looking for volunteers to help. You can work just 1 hour or as many hours as you would like!  It is a great way to spend time inside Harman during school and get to know the staff.  Go to our sign up genius site to volunteer in the workroom.

3.    Hospitality!  This PTO committee does refreshments for the Harman Holiday Assemblies on Friday, Dec. 13.  They would love your help! Send an email to harmanschoolpto@gmail.com.
