2018 – 2019 PTA Volunteers

Please take a moment to browse the list of volunteer opportunities. Please refer to konstella for the latest list and current openings. If you are interested in a position, please sign-up.

Volunteering for a PTA role is a great way to make a big impact and stay connected to the school. The work of the PTA is critical to so much of what make Barron Park Elementary great. Only parents with executive board roles are required to attend a monthly board meeting which is typically a Friday morning from 8:30 – 9:30am.

If you have questions about any of the roles please contact Nakia Davis or Ana Hunter.

Community contributions to PIE make a difference

Palo Alto Partners in EducationPiE has just launched its 2018-2019 fundraising campaign. Please consider pledging your contribution as our kids need the support of the whole community.

PiE funds go to every Palo Alto district school and provide each principal with the funding needed to staff many essential programs for the students and families at each school location. From our classroom aides, to teachers for STEAM-focused electives, music and art, to caring counselors and mentors, PiE-funded staff impact on our kids every day. Between now and September 4, you can double your impact via the $500,000 Back-To-School Challenge Grant which matches every dollar donated to PiE. Please donate today!

Library Volunteer Opportunity

The Barron Park Library is a wonderful, busy place with excellent resources for students, staff, and parents to share. We need volunteers to help run this amazing resource – helping students locate materials, shelve books, and keeping the library tidy and clean. All are welcomed here – If you’ve volunteered at Barron Park’s Library in the past we hope we will see you here again. If you’ve never worked in a library we’ll be happy to show you the ropes.

It’s a great place to engage with what the children are reading and sharing their passion for engaging and beautiful books.

We will be using Konstella to schedule library volunteers. Please login and click the Library Volunteer Committee Tab to the left of your screen to sign up.
