Register for PTA, Volunteer Opportunities and Student interests
1. Register for PTA
- Dues can be paid to Jackson Office or at the PTA meeting in October
- Dues are $8/ Individual or $15/Couple
- PTA meetings are the 1st of every month at 6-7pm, in the cafe. Free childcare provided.
2. Volunteer Interests
Please know that signing up for an event DOES NOT fully commit you to it. We are just generating an interest list and as these events draw closer we will send out an email to those who show interest through this survey to see who is available and in what capacities. Volunteers are what makes Jackson such a great community and there are opportunities for both working parents, stay at home parents and both with a boatload of little tagalongs or big middle and high school helpers.
3. Student Groups Interest
The survey also lists extra circular activities at Jackson. Again this does not sign up students, but we will pass along the contact information so the group leader can reach out to those who are interested.
