Cunha PTO

 Cunha PTO

Welcome Cunha Families

The Cunha PTO serves two functions. One is to raise funds in order to support a variety of educational activities and experiences for every student and teacher at Cunha Intermediate School. The PTO’s other function is to organize the main pool of parent volunteers which allows Cuhna to put on such events as: School Dances, Honor Roll and AVID Field Trips, 8th Grade Graduation, and more. If you’d like to stay informed, please like our “Cuhna PTO” page on Facebook and if you’d like to get involved, please e-mail us!

Parent Volunteer Opportunities

Below is a list of most PTO sponsored volunteer opportunities for this school year. Help for these events is requested throughout the year—usually 1-3 weeks before an event—either via SignUpGenius by the event lead or via backpack flyer from the Cuhna Office. The event leads typically e-mail their SignUpGenius’ to past volunteers first, then it is forwarded to parents by the Cuhna Office. We will also post the SignUpGenius’ on the Cuhna PTO Facebook page.
