SECRETARY / “FACT FINDER”
Be honest—you’re the one in your friend group who filled out every page in your child’s baby book...at the right time, no less. If you’re the kind of person who documents everything, from your toddler’s first steps to how far you jogged yesterday, we have the perfect role for you. You’ll get to put your stellar recordkeeping skills and attention to detail to good use as our PTSO secretary. You must have good listening and computer skills—and extra credit if you can follow what’s on Instagram and play Candy Crush at the same time.
