Join PTA Committees

We have various PTA-organized events and efforts that need support throughout the year.

Our PTA is only as strong as ALL its members. Every parent/guardian at the Children’s School is a member of the PTA.  Please volunteer for a PTA committee, or to help the day-of during an event. Your involvement helps make our school successful!   Email if you have questions about how you might be able to help.

Committee sign ups can also be found on Konstella. (Not on Konstella for our school yet? Email to join.)

The first session of Pizza Friday begins in October.
