    Clark's 2nd Annual Fun Fair - Volunteers Still Needed

    Clark’s Second Annual Fun Fair is this Friday, May 17th from 5:30-8:00pm on the Clark School Grounds.

    This fun event is open to the Clark community and sponsored by the Clark PTO. There will be bounce houses, games, prizes, professional face painting, balloon making and carnival themed food to purchase.

    To make this event a success we need your help! We are looking for volunteers to help run games, bounce houses and serve food……older siblings are welcome!! We also need people to sign up to make sweet treats for the cake walk. We are looking for homemade items as well as store bought. See the attached Fun Fair flyer for more details about the event and how to sign up to help.

    The PTO Needs Your Help - Jr. Co-President needed

    The Clark PTO Executive Board is still looking for a parent to serve as a Jr. Co-President. This is a 2-year term where you will learn the ropes as a Jr. Co-President before serving as a Sr. Co-President. Additionally, since this is a Co-President position, you share responsibilities with another parent. The PTO Jr. Presidents serve as parliamentarian at all monthly PTO meetings; act as an aide to the Senior Presidents; attend or review minutes of the bi-monthly school board meetings and report critical information to the Executive Board; serve as liaisons to the Webster Groves School District Foundation, and participate in budget conversations. This is an exciting opportunity to have a real impact on the functioning of the Clark PTO and the many benefits it provides to the broader Clark community. Child care is provided during the general public PTO meetings. For more details, please contact Sarah Pursell at thepursells@gmail.com
