Volunteer Opportunities

SWEPTA is planning a lot of exciting events and activities. If you have some time to share, please fill out the printable volunteer sign-up sheet and return it to the office or your child’s teacher.  Thank you for taking the time to volunteer at our schools.  Your time and effort are truly appreciated!  We love our volunteers!

Jog-a-thon – This is SWEPTA’s one and only major fundraiser for the year and happens in September.  The proceeds go to fund all SWEPTA’s programs and activities for the school year.

Bingo – This is one of SWEPTA’s most exciting events of the year and happens between January – March. We need  event organizers, prize solicitors and volunteers for the event.

Family Activities – These are evening events held through out the year organized to promote family interaction. Events may be dances, movie nights, sports theme activities, ice cream socials and other special programs. Volunteers needed to plan and organize events.

Science Day – This is a One day event in the middle of the School Year. Volunteers are needed to be presenters and also host the events, bringing lunch for presenters or assisting at presentations.

Hospitality – This committee is responsible for all the goodies provided at various functions through out the year. If you like to bake this is the committee for you!

Legislative – If you are interested in politics and how they affect our educational system here is an opportunity to learn what role the PTA has in the decision making process locally, statewide and nationally.

Art Docent – You don’t need to be an artist, just have an appreciation of the importance of art for our students.  The curriculum is provided for all art docent volunteers.  You visit the classroom once or twice a month to show and talk about a famous artist and their work.  Then the students create an artwork based on the technique of the artist presented.  Later in the year, there a need for volunteers with Festival of the Arts, a community art show for the students to show their work created in this program throughout the year.

Staff Appreciation – Each May SWEPTA thanks the teachers and staff of the Elementary School and Bus Barn with a week of fun events. Join us in decorating the classroom doors, providing lunch goodies, or even washing their cars.

*NEW* 5/6 Middle School Friday Fun Nights – We would love to get a volunteer interested in helping organizing ‘Friday Fun Nights’ on occasion through out the year for the 5th and 6th graders.  These would be drop off events that have some adult chaperones and could be game nights, movie nights etc. that appeal to the older kids.
