Volunteer Opportunities

It takes all of us working together to make a difference in our children’s lives and education. We need your help and ideas to make the PAC as vital and effective as it can be. There are many tasks both large and small that we currently need help with. We know how busy everyone is and will be respectful of your time limitations. I encourage you to jump in and get your feet wet in whatever capacity you’re comfortable. Remember the old saying, “Many hands make light work!”
