Here is where we need your help!!


 Volunteers have an important and valuable role with the Jamesburg PTA.  It does not matter if you volunteer for one hour or one hundred hours over the course of the school year; any help you give is essential in enhancing the education of our students.

 Volunteers may work with the PTA on fundraisers or at events.  Besides supporting the school, your volunteer efforts teach our children the joy and obligation that we all should give some of our precious time to worthwhile causes.  We hope you find your volunteer experience to be a rewarding one. 

 To get the most from your volunteer experience, it is important to be informed.  This handbook contains important information about your work with the Jamesburg PTA, please take some time to read through it.  If you still have any questions about volunteering, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator (listed on the contacts page at Appendix A). 

 Interests and Talents

 Volunteers are generally matched to appropriate opportunities through the Volunteer Coordinator.  Each potential volunteer is requested to complete a volunteer form (see Appendix B) to communicate their interests and talents so they can best be matched with available opportunities.

 The Jamesburg PTA provides various education enrichment opportunities for our students, such as assemblies, after school events, and the bookfair.  Funding of these programs comes from various PTA fundraising activities and events.  Numerous opportunities exist for volunteering with the PTA, and all volunteers are encouraged to attend PTA meetings, which are usually held on the second Tuesday of each month.

Ways to Volunteer with the Jamesburg PTA

 Some examples of ways you may be able to help the Jamesburg PTA include:


Signing in and out

 All volunteers should enter through the front doors and proceed directly to the main office.  For the safety of our children, all volunteers must sign-in at the school office upon arrival.  Volunteer badges are available for you to wear so that you can be properly identified in the school. 

 By signing in, you are making it possible for school personnel to locate you in the event of an emergency.  It is important that you write your name legibly, as well as the reason you are in the building.

 It is also important to remember to sign-out when you leave.
