How can you be involved?
 
All parents are a part of our PTO! Volunteering with the Elon PTO is a great way to be involved with the students and teachers at our school. You can show your support for our school by participating in fundraising activities and volunteering at PTO sponsored events. Anyone wishing to volunteer or chaperone must complete a background check prior to volunteering. We strongly suggest doing this as soon as possible as it can take at least six weeks to complete. You can have this done at no charge at:
 
                                            Amherst County Public Schools
                                                     School Board Office
                                               Office of Human Resourses
                                                  153 Washington Street
                                                      Amherst, VA 24521
                                                          (434) 946-9376
 
There are also many ways you can volunteer from home!  Ask a teacher or a board member today how you can help.
