The mission of New Eagle PTO is to enhance the educational and social experience of the students and families of New Eagle Elementary School. We achieve this by coordinating, and contributing both money and manpower to, a variety of events, programs, field trips, clubs, and more. New Eagle PTO is an all-volunteer organization and we simply cannot continue our mission without volunteers. We need YOU!
EVERYONE is welcome to help us! The PTO is VERY grateful for every parent who steps up and offers to help us by giving their time to help our cause and strive to make every parent volunteer feel welcome and appreciated! We are not the “clique” parent-teacher organization that movies are made of — we are all just a bunch of parents who love our kids and our school and want to help make New Eagle a great place for all!
There are many volunteer opportunities available, regardless of the amount of time or experience you have to offer. To express your interest in any volunteer role at New Eagle PTO, please read the descriptions below, then submit our PTO Volunteer Interest Form. Please note that there are many other volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Watch our news section and email blasts for other opportunities as they become available!
The following is an overview of the types of positions offered throughout the year as openings are available. CURRENT positions open appear in the next section.
- Board Positions: PTO officers are elected and serve for 1 year terms. Open positions are generally posted near the end of the school year for the following year.
- Committee Chair Positions: Committee Chair positions are appointed and serve for the duration of the event they are chairing. The amount of time and scope of responsibility varies based on the position – see position descriptions below for more information.
- Committee Volunteer Positions & Event Volunteers: The events that the committee chairs lead almost always need volunteers – and sometimes, MANY volunteers. These are great for those who cannot commit to full-year positions and/or who have interest in certain events. These volunteer openings are announced throughout the year as committee chairs begin planning of their events. We recommend you regularly read the News on our website and announcements in email blasts throughout the year as we will post announcements of upcoming events and calls for volunteers.
