Seeking volunteers

Thanks to those who have volunteered to be on the PTA Board and to chair events for our kids and families next year.  The PTA still has a few roles to fill: 

  • Ice Cream Social (August)
  • Teacher Appreciation (May)
  • Stage Crew mentors (weekly)
  • Communications Assistant/Newsletter Distribution (weekly)
  • Literacy Events
  • eScrip publicity and coordination
  • Shop with Scrip publicity and card distribution
  • Community Helpers mentors

If you’ve been wanting to help but thinking that somebody else will surely volunteer – it hasn’t happened yet. We need you!  If you’re interested in any of these roles, please see the attached letter and email ptapres@nsmontessori.org for more information.
