It's YOUR school ... so GET INVOLVED!  By volunteering, you not only fill a vital need in the PTA, but your participation gives you the chance to feel more connected to your child and involved with Kent Elementary.  Another benefit of volunteering with the PTA is the opportunity to meet new parents and make new friends.   You'll be "in the know" about PTA events, learn more about the school, and get to know the teachers and staff.  AND it's so wonderful to see how PROUD the kids get when they see their parents volunteering at the school!  No matter how much, or little, time you have, please consider helping out at just one event ... or for just an hour.  


Do you want to have lunch with your child?  Would you like to help with classroom parties or field trips?  Student safety is our #1 priority.  In order to participate in any of these activities, or volunteer in another capacity, you must complete a volunteer background check.  A new volunteer background check is required each school year.
