HOW YOU CAN HELP YOUR PTAVolunteerWe can’t do it without you. In order to run successful programs and events, we need volunteers. Please feel free to contact any of the PTA Board members or committee chairs and let them know how you want to help.PTA's Ultimate Fundraiser CampaignThe PTA spends about $30 per month per student on enrichment programs for the children at River School. From mid-August through early September, the PTA holds its' annual campaign to raise these funds. If we reach our goal, then all our scheduled enrichment programs will be fully funded and you will not be contacted again regarding financial support for the entire year. If we fall short, however, then additional fundraising efforts may be required or some traditional programs will be curtailed or cancelled. We need to aim for 100% participation in order to cover all our field trips and programs. Please give generously and encourage your friends to do the same: your children and their friends are the direct beneficiaries!

The only way the library can run smoothly with the volume of classes and books checked out is with the help of parent volunteers. Volunteers are needed to assist with daily needs – reshelving books, repairing damaged books, preparing new books, general library maintenance, etc. The library also needs volunteers to help during the Scholastic Book Fair with everything from organizing the book fair, setting up for the event, tearing down after the event, and volunteering to help during the book fair as well. Please contact our librarian, Annie Jasper, firstname.lastname@example.org, to volunteer or if you have questions.ESCRIPYou register any one or all of your existing grocery loyalty, debit, and credit cards for use in the program.
