1 / Board Member
We are looking to expand our Board! We will have some open officer positions next year and always need extra support. Our Board members attend an additional FFO meeting a month (2nd Thursday of every month) and are active via text thread. Please fill out the interest form if you are interested. Please note, all board member positions are appointed. If you are interested in being an officer next year, being on the Executive Board this year is a great way to start!
We will have two open positions next year - President & Treasurer. Please let us know if you are interested in shadowing/assisting Amy or Kourtney to ease the transition for next year.
2 / School Spirit Wear Coordinator
This person will work with our supplier, Lyndsay, to set up a winter order using this year's design. We are thinking the winter order would include beanies, sweatshirts, and more. This person would also figure out a design for next year (using Canva?) and set up the order so it is ready to go at the beginning of the year.
3 / Thank You Coordinator
We always have many thank you’s to write and never have enough time to write them. If you love writing thank you notes, this position is for you!
4 / Photographer/Videographer/Storyteller
Our events need to be documented. We need help with our marketing. If this is a skill anyone has, we would greatly appreciate your help!

Stem-a-thon, January 29 - February 2, 2024 - Need 1-2 More Chairs

The chairpeople are in charge of setting up the online donations system, promoting the event, getting the science activities ready, and organizing volunteers.
An Evening of the Arts, April 26, 2024 - Need 1 more chair
We host an art gallery in the Spring with a fundraiser (purchasing the students' artwork to be framed) along with performances by our band, orchestra, and choir. We had two food trucks on site. This year, we would like to include our Silent Auction at this event (separate committee.) The tentative date is Friday, April 26, 2024.
The chairpeople will coordinate with Mrs. Fouts to prepare the artwork and coordinate with volunteers to set up the gallery walls and decorate the MPR. They will coordinate with the other art teachers to create a performance schedule and manage the stage. They will manage the sale of the artwork, and organize clean up after the event. They might coordinate food trucks as well.
Silent Auction, TBD - Need Chairs
Our silent auction is a fun fundraiser! We solicit classrooms for baskets of donations and also solicit community organizations for donations. We are planning on adding this event to another (date TBD!)The chairpeople are in charge of updating templates and the Google sheet to solicit donations from VV families and Tucson/community partners. They are also in charge of running the silent auction and setting up/taking down.
