2016-17 KINGSLEY PTA COMMITTEES & VOLUNTEERS

The Kingsley PTA cannot be successful without the help of Parent Volunteers!  PTA projects range in seasonality, duration, time commitment, and location of where work can be performed.  Please consider getting involved and sharing your skills!  We have noted those aspects as well as provided a brief description in the list below.  Chairperson(s)/Co-Chairs are responsible for coordinating an event with the assistance of volunteers, past event materials, and the support of the VP as necessary.  Volunteers are assigned duties as needed.  Chairpersons must be members of the PTA; however, Volunteers do not.

 

Please note:   Some chairpersons have already come forward for some of the committees for the 2016-2017 school year.   Their names have been indicated on the form below.   Many events benefit from having a Co-Chair!  If you would like to split a Chairperson role with someone else but don’t know who, please mark your name for a Co-Chair.
