Just a few reasons to volunteer…
We understand giving up time with your family is not easy and we are all busy. There are some easy ways to volunteer that are not too impactful. Most times it is a events where families are gathering anyway or a school event that you might be attending anyway. Here are just a few ideas…
- Volunteer for a 30-minute shift at an event
- Take pictures for the yearbook at an event
- Bring in food for Staff Appreciation days (even a bottle of salad dressing helps)
- Help on Picture Day being a ‘runner’ to get the classes to the photographers
Our PTA helps bring the assemblies to the school, helps buy supplies and materials, adds new library books, provides fun activities for families, raises money for new play structures and new classroom technology, and the list goes on and on. Helping at fundraisers helps to raise money for these items and helping at fun family events or activities helps to give the children their childhood memories. Many hands make light work.

SignUp Genius makes it easy to know where and when help is needed.
