We Need You

How to Get Involved

If you have talent, time or resources to give, the PTA has a spot that fits your needs perfectly. Our PTA is made up of all kinds of parents…some who work full-time, some who stay at home, some who work for themselves, and some who manage a big team of their own. The wonderful diversity of our school is mirrored in the amazing and diverse talents of our volunteers. We need everything from at-school help during the day to weekend event setup, or even remote website and communications tasks. Whether you can volunteer one time or on a recurring basis, we are appreciative of what you have to give.

Investing in Your Student
