2023-2024 Boyce PTO Committees
We're planning for the school year! Want to help out with the PTO?
- Seeking various 2023-2024 Committee Chairs
If you are interested in assisting with any of the various committees or have any questions, please contact PTO Advisor, Erica Baldasare (BoycePTOAdvisor@gmail.com).
After School Activities
Chair would reach out to local organizations (eg. USC Library, Rec Center, local businesses) to obtain offerings/costs, propose them to the PTO board for approval, and coordinate parent volunteers/student sign-ups.
Arts in USC
The USC PTC sponsors a creative art competition for both grades. This committee distributes flyers to students, advertises the event, submits the entries to the USC PTC Arts in USC chair, and helps hang up the entries for the event.
Work with the Boyce librarian to plan and organize a school-wide program centering on an author’s presentation to the students. This program typically occurs in the Spring and is led by the Librarian.
Assist the band director by organizing parent volunteers to help with the annual Winter and Spring concerts. Ideally, we have a 5th grade chair and a 6th grade chair who will work together to help with the concerts.
Work with Scholastic Books and the librarian to organize and staff a book fair in late September. Committee is responsible for recruiting volunteers, setting up the fair, assisting students during the sale, distributing ordered books and packing unsold merchandise after the sale is complete. The Boyce Book Fair runs during the fall Open House, so chairs will likely miss some or all of Open House, unless committee volunteers are able to run the fair at that time.
Work with the PTO teacher representative to coordinate the monthly school-wide student recognition program. Will also be responsible for taking group photos of the recognized students and submitting them to the yearbook chair.
Coordinate with the High School chess club dates that they can assist and teach students to play chess. There are typically 2 sessions that take place (fall and spring) but more may be scheduled based on availability.
Assist the choral director by organizing parent volunteers to help with the annual winter and spring concerts. Ideally, we would have both a 5th and 6th grade parent chairperson who will work together to help with the concerts.
