Volunteer Opportunities

The Gullett PTA is committed to supporting our school through a variety of programs designed to enhance educational opportunities for our children. In order to do this, we need YOU, our parent volunteers to get involved and make these programs happen!!

Remember that volunteering your time and talents not only benefits your child but enriches our entire school community by providing students and teachers with positive interaction, support and encouragement. By interacting with teachers, administrators, and other parents on a regular basis, you’ll gain a firsthand understanding of your child’s daily activities. Plus, it’s lots of FUN!

Please see below for a list of volunteer opportunities and contact the appropriate chair for more information. Or, if you have an idea for something that is not listed here, contact our PTA President. We are always happy to hear new ideas!

Thanks for being a part of our unique community! We are so grateful for all that you do!
