Like with Halloween, the PTA is proud to support our teacher-led holiday activities through special treats for our students. Help is needed to stuff enough goodie bags for our entire school community. Thank you to all volunteers!
The PTA is comprised of several committees that are not centered around one specific event, but are critical to the function of the PTA. Help is needed on all committees, so if you see something on this list that matches your interest or skill-set, please reach out to us at email@example.com - we are here to support you & help you get started!
Membership - Assist the PTA board by conducting data entry and quality control in our online membership database, A to Z. Provide quality control in our database and provide membership totals as needed by the Executive Board. These tasks can be done at home at a time that's convenient!
Communications - Communications are critical in seeking event volunteers and keeping our Wildcat families informed of upcoming events and opportunities. We are specifically looking for social media managers, volunteers to put together flyers, and website updates.
Yearbook - The Wildcat yearbook is a treasure each year to our students. The PTA is in need of a few more members for our yearbook team with yearbook work starting at the beginning of the year. Much of the yearbook work is done at home at a time that's convenient.
Photography - We need hobby photographers to attend PTA and school events throughout the year to take pictures for our yearbook.
Spirit Wear - This is a creative role in that you get to help the PTA design and restock our in-person spirit wear. New ideas are always welcome to supplement our online shop. We can't wait to hear your ideas!
