Events & Volunteer Opportunities
If there is an event you are particularly interested in helping out with or if you have ideas for other events please let us know by catching us at the school, sending an email, calling, or coming to a PTA meeting.
Volunteers – We need a parent from each class at Sharpstein to be a liaison between the teacher and the PTA. Duties include checking in with the teacher to see if they have any needs, ideas or concerns. This parent would also be a point person to help with fundraiser competitions between classes, encourage involvement from other parents and any other ideas you may have. We are hoping to make the PTA more accessible in this way for both teachers and parents. Contact your child's teacher if you are interested.
