I filled out a Volunteer Interest form but haven’t heard back. How do I get involved?

Send us an email at with what areas you would like to help with.  The PTO board is made up of busy parents who volunteer their time to manage the organization so sometimes it can take us some time to get to everything on our to-do list.

What are the benefits of becoming a PTO member?

Being a PTO member affords many opportunities to directly impact the students at Blackman Elementary.  Members have voting rights on a number of issues throughout the year, including board member elections in April.  Members will also be notified of teacher/staff birthdays each month and have the option to request gift ideas throughout the year.
