The committees at the left are standing committees. Committee Members have no time commitment other than what they are able to offer. The Chairperson or persons from each committee must be voted in by a majority vote at a General Meeting by the general membership. Chairperson or persons then become a voting member of the Executive Board. Chairperson terms are for 2 years, or until they no longer have a child attending Cold Spring School and/or Swift River Elementary.
Terms begin on July 1 of the year elected and continue until June 30 of the year the term expires. One member or Officer may serve as Chair or Co-Chair of more than one committee, but will have one vote as a member of the Executive Board, regardless of the number of committees chaired..

The Teacher and Staff Appreciation Committee encourages all parents, students and the wider community to recognize the important contributions, both personal and professional, of teachers and school staff to the lives of children and their education. Every school has dedicated teachers and school staff members. This committee lets them know that they are appreciated; that we want to work with them and that we are on the same team.
