GET INVOLVED — VOLUNTEER!
When adults volunteer, all students benefit! There are many opportunities for parents and community members to get involved! Your help is needed!
We have volunteer opportunities for parents to help in every manner and time capacity. Don’t think that helping out with the PTA is a full-time job – many folks donate an hour or two a year, while others want to dig into the trenches.
There is space for everyone, and with more folks, each person needs to do less! We will provide as much or as little guidance as you prefer. We are here to help you help our school, and we will do our best to make volunteering fun!
To learn about our volunteer opportunities, contact Lindsay Rayfield at Lindsaycobb@gmail.com.
You can also click here to show your interest for specific volunteer positions and someone from the PTA will reach out to you when event planning begins. We look forward to working with you to give all our students the best possible educational experience!
All parents who volunteer MUST have completed a form. Send the form into Gayton's front office.
