Becoming a Volunteer
Whether you are a PTA member or not, volunteering is a great way to support our kids and school. There are many opportunities to volunteer throughout the year and many take minimal commitment. Whether you are a working parent or have more flexibility there are many events throughout the school year that need your help. We have executive board positions, and committee chairs, as well as volunteer opportunities during fundraisers, family fun nights, teacher appreciation, talent show and carnival. We hope that any of these will interest you. Contrary to popular belief you don’t have to do it all. Pick one (or two!) things and I promise you, your time will be appreciated!
