If you would like to participate in one of the following areas below, please add your name & volunteer preference to the comments. If you would like to be added as a committee member to help "as needed" please add that as well. Co-chairing positions are encouraged! Volunteering makes a difference in your student's school career. There are many ways to volunteer, even if you are a working parent. We are all busy, but there is ALWAYS something that can be done to lend a helping hand and improve the school experience. It doesn't have to be a big thing, in fact, just the opposite- it is all the small things that make the BIGGEST difference! Add your name below and be a part of something great! PTA!
