Committees

The Winfield PTO is always looking for volunteers, if you see a committee you would like to help with or if you have questions about the committee, please contact that committee chair.  Click Calendar Events and Upcoming Programs for event committee dates and times.

Please consider making the 2 Hour Pledge.  If every parent donated only 2 hours of their time to our school each year, that would provide over 1400 hours of volunteer time!  There are so many fun and rewarding family activities to get involved in. And what better way to spend your time than doing something with your kids.  We are always looking for new ideas and fresh perspectives!
