Help Us Make a Brand New PTA! 

We need your Voice, your Energy, your Creativity, and your Skills

Do you have a talent or passion for:

  • Organizing people or projects?
  • Advocating for others further from racial justice?
  • Making others feel welcome and appreciated?
  • Coming up with ideas?
  • Posting to social media?
  • Making digital graphics?
  • Supporting local businesses?
  • Communicating information?
  • Running events?
  • Able to speak another language?
  • Love to make art?

Many hands make light work and we don’t want anyone to be overextended or overwhelmed. We have identified roles for families to help support our community.

Please take a moment to see if there is a way you can help us to Make a Brand New PTA during this year of remote and/or hybrid learning.
