Make a difference. Volunteer! Signups are open for the following activities:
PTA Officers wanted!
We can always use a few more people to fill in specific roles in the PTA. There's training and support available. No prior experience necessary. Come be the voice of the students, teachers and parents and have fun along the way. You might discover new skills you didn't know you had!
Monthly Family Dine out committee
The family dine out is recurring event (currently monthly) that the committee coordinates with the school and the restaurant that could host the Zanker community. This is the perfect opportunity for individuals that would like to help but can only do it from their homes. The typical tasks would be to research restaurants nearby that can host our event, coordinate a schedule between the restaurant and the school (preferably, nothing else is going on during the times we have this event), create a donation voucher (if necessary, some restaurants have their own vouchers), develop marketing strategy for the event (publish a Facebook event, distribute flyers and making sure the check gets to the PTA treasurer.
We need photographers to document the events that we host
Our PTA website (zankerpta.org) needs some TLC. Help us keep it up to date while sharpening your HTML skills, or this is a perfect introduction to HTML programming.
See's Fundraiser volunteers wanted!
Who wouldn't want to buy candy? We need a team of volunteers to run this fundraiser. Coordinate timing, consolidate orders, distribute to the school.
Uniform Exchange Pilot
We are very excited to pilot a uniform exchange program this year. We will solicit a few businesses for uniform donations but a majority of the source would be the Zanker community itself. A process needs to be developed for dropping off gently worn and for requesting them.
Staff Appreciation Week
They do everything for our kids so during this special week, let's do something for them! Please help us plan and execute.
We put up a 3-5 day holiday pop-up store to help the kids purchase holiday presents for their family and friends in an environment that is healthy, no-pressure and familiar. We need volunteers to form the committee and run the store in shifts during those days.
The jog-a-thon is back and this time, the PTA is running (get it?) it. This will be held on a Saturday this year. If you are a running enthusiast (or just know how to run :)) and would like to share your expertise, please consider joining this committee.
Spring Community Carnival
It's back with a vengeance! Due to insistent public demand, the spring carnival is back. Please join us to try to make this event bigger and better than ever.
