Committees

The Norris PTO sponsors various events, activities and programs throughout the school year and we couldn’t do it without the support of the PTO volunteers.  You can volunteer to be on an event planning committee or just sign up for an hour.  Interested in photography or design?  Are you an excellent organizer or perhaps crafty and creative?  We could use your help!
