Become a Volunteer!

Let us know if you can share a little bit of your time and talent. 

If you are interested in volunteering on any way, please fill this form. We are always looking for helpers. As we are all moving through the school year, we need parents of all grades to help keep the PTA active and involved.

All volunteers must complete the volunteer application process. Please contact the school office for more information and/or to make sure your volunteer status is up to date.

GET INVOLVED!

Research has shown that a major factor attributing to student success is parental involvement.  Sometimes it is hard to believe that your children actually want you to be involved when they try to convince you otherwise.  So, what can you do?  Get involved! One way is simply by joining the PTA. You decide how much more involved you want to be after that.

Join the Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

Who should join:  Parents, teachers and community members are encouraged to join.

What we do: The PTA is a child advocacy association that brings a closer relationship with home and school so that you and your child’s teachers may cooperate together in your child’s education.

Why:  Support the PTA, and you support your child, teachers and school community. 

How:  Membership is $15. Click here to join electronically. You can also drop off your check in the office during office hours.

When:  PTA Meetings are the 3rd Thursday of each month except December and February at 7pm. Currently they will be virtual on Zoom. You don't have to attend the meetings just because you are a member, but we LOVE seeing parents at the meetings! Kids are welcome! Our next meeting is February 15th at 7pm.
