1. Now that all schools have started their new school year, remember that they need volunteers. To look into volunteering, go to the school district's website and, in the upper right hand corner, select your child's school from the drop box and go to the appropriate school Web page. There, you can find the school calendar, information about the school's PTA or PTO and how you can volunteer. Also attached is the San Bruno Education Foundation membership application. The foundation supports all of the schools in the district and the organization needs your help. San Bruno students need you!
2. The city is currently looking for a few interested residents to fill vacancies on some of their many boards, commissions and committees. The necessary form is attached. Even if there is not an opening on a specific committee you might be interested in, your interest will be kept on file for at least one year and the city will contact you when there is an opening. These boards, commissions and committees are very valuable to your city.
