Volunteers are valuable both inside and outside of the classroom. Listed below are brief descriptions of some of the needs for your school. Please take a look and contact us at volunteer@greenhillspta.org if you have any questions. Thank you!

RECURRING OPPORTUNITIES

Grade Level Representative​s

Help keep parents and students connected with each other virtually this year by planning or hosting social events for the kids or families. There are lots of fun, low-effort ideas and sometimes it just takes hosting a Zoom session for kids to chat together and get their sillies out. Ideally we would like 2-3 Grade Level Reps per grade. You can also attend the PTA Board Meetings :)
