WE NEED YOU!

Jackson Elementary relies on its PTA for so much in an effort to make the school experience something special and truly enjoyable for all of the students and staff. We can do some great things for the school together, but we need volunteers to really make the magic happen. We want to start planning for next year early and really get some fun activities on the schedule for all.


Our students and teachers have been through the ringer these last two to three years, and we want to do everything we can, AS THEIR PTA, to help them bounce back and experience school in a positive light, as a place of fun, learning, refuge, and resource!


Attached you will find several descriptions of our PTA board and chair positions. If you are interested in volunteering with us via a board position, chair position, or just volunteering as the needs arise, please complete the google form found at the link below, and we will be in contact with you soon to begin our planning for next year!
