Volunteers are essential to the AAPTO-CP and we are looking for committed volunteers to step forward into Executive Board positions starting in October of this year. Being a PTO Board member is a great way to meet new people and hone your leadership skills, but most importantly, it’s a way to make a difference with our school and children.

Requirements & Position Details:
1) Candidates must be willing to serve a term of 2 years.
2) Able to attend monthly PTO board meetings (meeting are currently held in the evening on the 1st Tuesday of the month, subject to change)
3) Applicants must be detail oriented, organized, and possess excellent communication skills.
Vice President of Fundraising Events:
Staffs and manages committee chairs to successfully implement American Academy – Castle Pines’ two annual fundraisers: Fun Run, a fundraising event where the children are involved in helping their school; and Parents Partnering for a Purpose – P3, our adults only fundraising event. The VP of Fundraising Events works as liaison between committee chairs, the PTO board, and school administration for marketing strategies and event implementation. He or she is responsible for managing the event calendar and budget and working with the treasurer to ensure accurate accounting. We are seeking a creative individual willing to put his or her own mark on these events. This position does entail a large time commitment in concentrated periods throughout the year.
Fundraising is vital to keeping our school a step above the rest. If you enjoy event planning and have a knack for fundraising, we have a place just for you!
The Board Treasurer is responsible for overseeing the PTO Board's financial activities. These duties include weekly processing of pay vouchers for payments and reimbursements, depositing funds into the PTO's Wells Fargo bank account, working with the Douglas County Educational Foundation to ensure proper accounting of funds, tracking income and expenses, and preparing the PTOCP's annual budget.
The time commitment for this position can vary. On average volunteers can expect to spend around 3 hours a week with more time seasonally after fall and spring fundraisers.
Deadline for Submission:
We will be accepting applications through September 25, 2016. If you are interested in taking on one of these roles please fill out the AAPTO-CP Board Member Application and email it back to the AAPTO-CP.

2016 K-5 Fun Run (posted by afleming; 09/17/16)
We have made a slight change to the Fun Run for 2016. This year we will be holding the Fun Run for elementary school separate from the middle school. The K-5 Fun Run will be Wednesday, September 28th. This year we are keeping our Fun Run in-house (no company has been hired to help in any way), so we are in need volunteers to help with all aspects of the event for it to run smoothly.
Thank you to everyone who signed up during registration to volunteer for this fun-filled event! If you signed up, you will start receiving emails soon about how you can help (and start accumulating those volunteer hours). If you missed the sign-up, but would like to be on the committee or help out on the day of the event, please email Amber O’Neill for more information. Keep a look-out for newsletters and posts with more information!!!
