2019/2020 Events and Programs

Country Oaks has a long standing tradition of bringing many amazing events and programs to our students and school community. In order to continue this tradition we need many team leaders and members to make these events successful!  Please take a look at the events that are planned for the 2019/20 school year. We have open positions on most teams. Please submit a volunteer form and you will be contacted close to the event that you would like to join a team for.


If you have any questions please contact Jill Lanham - Events & Volunteer Coordinator at eventsandvolunteers@countryoakspta.org.
