Volunteering - What is your ONE thing?
Park School offers families countless opportunities for volunteer participation. Regardless of whether you have 1 hour or 100 to volunteer, if you prefer to work at school or volunteer from home of the office, we NEED you. In your CLASS. In your SCHOOL.
This year at Park, we will emphasize “What is the ‘ONE thing’ you will do for your child’s CLASS and what is the ‘ONE thing’ you will do for your child’s school?” Start thinking and visit our "Get Involved" tab to learn more about the numerous volunteering opportunities at Park School. And see where these Park Parents have volunteered their time: What's Your ONE Thing?
The PTA provides parents with the majority of the information they receive about news and events at Park School. The PTA provides information in the following ways:
PTA General Meetings are held on the last Thursday of most months to discuss school issues and vote on PTA matters. All are invited to attend the meetings, but only PTA Members may vote.
Coffee Cart is held most Friday mornings on the upper playground after drop off, for parents to get together informally and learn about school news.
