Volunteer

 

 

 

Daniel Bagley is fortunate to have a community of families who give time and resources generously to help make the PTA successful. Participating in your child’s school is a great way to meet other families, to use your skills to benefit the school, and to have some fun. There are many ways to get involved. 

 

Not all volunteer needs are during the school day.  There are other ways to lend your talent to our school.  We are always looking for additional resources or connections – from graphic designers, printing services, photographers, videographers, project managers for events.  And of course, you can join the PTA Board!

  

Emailing us is NOT a commitment to volunteer, it is expressing your interest and means that you'll be contacted by a PTA volunteer to get more info about how you can help!  SPS volunteer screening may be required for some positions. *** PTA membership is required for Board chairs, but anyone can volunteer for non-board positions. ***


 

 

Join the PTA Board

 

Want to get even more connected the the Daniel Bagley community? Joining the PTA board is an excellent way to feel connected and engaged with the Daniel Bagley community and also to get to know the Bagley administration and staff.
