The PTC depends very heavily on parent volunteerism. We are fortunate to have many very dedicated parents who step up each year to run committees, but we are always looking for more help! Below are some great volunteer opportunities we hope you will consider.
If you are interested or want to learn more about any of these roles, please click on the buttons below:
Seeking Let's build Volunteers
Seeking 1st Grade Cafeteria Volunteers
Parent volunteers help the students get through the lunch line more quickly so that they have ample time to eat and help the 1st graders learn to clean up before the next lunch shift comes in. You can sign-up for as many or as few days as you can offer. To sign up click on the button below:
The Needham Fire Department is looking for community members to help keep fire hydrants in neighborhoods clear during the winter months, and they are offering a contest that will enable the winners to get a ride to school in a fire truck!
