Parents, the PTO needs your help!!!


There are many events scheduled that benefit all of our students at Markham. Markham has a reputation of having tremendous parent support for activities that make Markham the special school that it is. I am asking you all to consider signing up to help for upcoming events. No amount of time is too small! If you are interested in helping out you can contact the PTO directly by email at markhampto@gmail.com or respond to requests for help that come in the near future. Together we can continue to make Markham a great place for students to learn and succeed.
