Please feel free to refer any questions to your volunteer coordinators:

1. Know your volunteers: Contact all the volunteers who  signed up to work  on your committee. If your committee gets too many volunteers, you should call these volunteers and thank them for volunteering but refer them back to the VOLUNTEER COORDINATORS who can then place them with committees that need help.  Please do not forget to contact everyone who offers you help.

2. Know your Treasurers: Carrie Rullo ( and Sara Kello (

3. Know your budget: Contact Treasurers for amount available to spend or income goal to strive for with your fundraising activity.

4. Know your bills and vouchers: All bills and vouchers must be submitted to the Treasurers with ORIGINAL receipt and/or invoice AND an OHS voucher. Blank vouchers are available online and in the office. All receipts must be submitted within 30 days of the end of the event and then please allow 3 weeks for reimbursement.

5. Know your monies: All income from fundraisers should be tallied and then submitted to the Treasurers for bank deposit. Please coordinate with the Treasurers for a convenient time/place to drop off monies.

6. Know your PTA board: We are here to help in any way that we can! You should always feel free to contact any member on our PTA Board. We work as a team to get the job done and thank you for all your hard work as well.

7. Know your PTA by-laws: The OHS by-laws govern the PTA. Here are some things to remember:

  • All volunteers must be paid PTA members for the current school year and must fill out the district’s new volunteer form.
  • Committee work must be presented to board for approval.
