The PA is an integral part of what makes CS great and needs a variety of new volunteers for this year! Although there are several positions open, some have a greater urgency as they are currently unfilled.

To learn more about the SLT and member responsibilities, please read through the SLT bylaws (specifically Article I and Article II, Section 8). (The CEP and SLT bylaws were emailed to families.)
