PTO Volunteer Survey
As the current year is flying by, the Wallace PTO is gathering information about how you would be willing to volunteer your time for the 2017-2018 school year. Schools do best when parents participate. We have many opportunities for parents to get involved. All contributions are welcome!

Please take a moment to complete this survey before the end of April. Only one entry per family is needed. You will be contacted when the committee lists are finalized at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year.

We value your input and look forward to another wonderful year!
