Spring 2024 Volunteer Opportunities:

Move-A-Thon: Held each spring, the Move-A-Thon is a fundraising event held in conjunction with other south end schools as part of an effort by the South East Seattle Schools Fundraising Coalition (SESSFA). Opportunities for engagement include: providing pre-event logistical support, creatively designing an engaging event, marketing and communications to the school and local community, day-of volunteer support, and support counting contributions. Workload for this event will vary depending on role – we anticipate 3-8 hours of work between March and May.

Budget Committee: The 5-7 person budget committee has the important task of setting the budget for the following school year. Working in partnership with PTA leadership, the committee will seek community input on priorities for the PTA, will coordinate with school administration to understand the school’s needs, and will formulate a recommendation to the community for a 2024-2025 school year budget. This committee will meet 2-3 times between March and June, and there will be an additional 5-8 hours of work beyond meetings.

Nomination Committee: The 3-5 person nomination committee will be tasked with gathering nominations for PTA leadership for the 2024-2025 school year, and facilitating a vote for leadership roles in a June meeting. This will include advertising for the open positions, gathering nominations from the community, determining which names to present for a vote, and formally presenting their nominations in June. This group will meet 2-3 times between April and June, and there will be an additional 3-5 hours of work beyond meetings
