Ways to Volunteer with the Jamesburg PTA
Some examples of ways you may be able to help the Jamesburg PTA include:
Arranging bulletin board displays
Helping students shop at the bookfair/holiday shop
Help counting money and pretzel orders
Helping oversee student volunteers at monthly meetings
Recruiting other volunteers for activities
Chalk the walk at both schools
Assist at field day with activities
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.
