About Us

We are an all volunteer group that serves our school community. We would love for every SA family to help out with an activity or event that supports the school. Inside or out, during the school day or after hours, there are many easy ways to help, and we truly value your time, your ideas and your support. All are welcome to join us for our monthly meetings. Please see the calendar for meeting details.

Diversity Task Force

As one of the most diverse school in the Burlington School District, the Diversity Task Force works to promote family involvement and  understanding of all cultural, religious, nationalities represented in the school community and beyond. We believe that Diversity is our gift and our future. As part of the PTO, we collaborate with families, teachers and school administration in strengthening relationships with students and families while fostering family and community engagement in our school.


City Market Member Worker Opportunities

Our school is one of City Market/Onion River Co-op’s Community Outreach Partners, as we have a teaching garden on our grounds.  Co-op members are able to earn member worker credit by volunteering at our school, be it at PTO organized events (Harvest Run, Pancake breakfast) or with other activities that the school needs help with (garden work days, after school activities).  Please e-mail Monika monikita67[at]gmail[dot]com or Kelly kellykdson[at]gmail[dot]com for more info.
