PTC Board and Committee Openings for 2022- 2023 School Year

Are you looking for a way to volunteer and get involved at Indian Grove?

The Indian Grove PTC gives parents and teachers the opportunity to work together to supplement and enrich the educational experience for our students. With the return to in-person events again this spring, we will be looking for volunteers to help create a fun experience for the students and to support our teachers and staff.

We'll be looking for PTC Board Members, Committee heads and volunteers for upcoming events. There will be several opportunities to volunteer your time this spring and next school year. We'd love to have you join us!

For the 2022 - 2023 school year, we have these PTC Board and Committee Openings:

PTC Vice President (2022-2023 School year)

  • Assists the president(s) and carries out duties in his or her absence

  • Coordinates, recruits and motivates the Committee heads and updating the Committee head spreadsheet.

  • Organizes Effie Tsoronis Award and Volunteer appreciation.

PTC Secretary (2022-2023 School year):

  • Keeps all records of the PTC, including minutes, agendas, and bylaws.

  • Handles the PTC email communications and correspondence.

  • During PTC meetings:

  • Takes attendance, presents the draft minutes of the previous meeting, making any corrections.

  • Ensure approved minutes are included in the PTC's permanent record.

  • Takes minutes, including counting and recording any votes

Committee Heads needed for 2022-2023 school year:

Breakfast with Buddies - May 2023.

This committee head will organize a special breakfast with your favorite relatives. Communicate the event, take orders, purchase the food and beverage, organize volunteers, and set up the cafeteria the morning of the event. This event is held on two consecutive mornings before school in May.
