Join a Committee. Have fun. Help Schiff.
Are you a whiz at networking? Enjoy whipping up a tasty treat? Love graphic design? Passionate about lists or spreadsheets? Just want to contribute to your child's education?
Whatever your passion, we've got a place for you. Several committees meet throughout the year to manage important PTO events and responsibilities. We know Schiff parents have a breadth of skills and experience, and we'd love to put them to work for our kids.

The Fundraising Committee's biggest responsibility is Shark Week, Schiff's annual donation drive held soon after school starts. Last year, Schiff families donated over $38,000. This committee also oversees funds received from the Box Tops program, spirit nights at local restaurants, and shopping rewards from partner stores.
Shark Week: September 9-13, 2019
Committee Chair: Lauren Bustos
Enjoy documenting both the everyday moments and the big events? Love to edit a photo so it tells a story?
The Yearbook Committee works with a vendor to design, write, and print the yearbook. The committee would love help both photographing and organizing/editing others' photos as well as documenting major events, articles, and milestones through the year.
