    Other PTA Functions


    The PTA is active with the Site Council to improve school achievement, working to organize Parent Nights and increase parent involvement, and to do outreach to the community and recruit families to King School. If you want to volunteer or you or someone you know has questions about King, contact us and we will put you in touch with the right person.

    If you have specific interest or strengths in the following areas, please feel free to be a part of one or more of these committees:

    Event Planning - Plan and oversee PTA events and the timeline for events as they approach.

    Auction - Help plan the party of the year!  King will hold its second auction this year so that the PTA can better support the IB program, field trips, afterschool activities and the expansion of the garden.

    Fundraising - Find new ways to fundraise throughout the year and maximize the fundraising for our annual signature fundraising efforts.

    Welcoming - Make sure member interest is followed up on personally. Walk new members through the PTA’s goals for the year, explain the role of committees, and identify how they would like to serve.
    Parent/Community Outreach - Network with parents, businesses and organizations in the community to bring resources to King School and build new partnerships.

    Grant Writing - Find creative avenues to leverage additional money. Stay current on grant opportunities and keep PTA informed.

    Nutrition - Research and initiate changes to our students’ nutrition program. Offer educational information on healthy lifestyles and eating habits.

    Exterior/Interior/Décor Maintenance - Stay on top of appearance of the school, keep flowers/trees watered, beds planted with seasonal flowers, keep weeds pulled. Create a schedule to water plants, and walk the halls to assist with keeping the halls decorated.

    Grade Level Liaisons/Teacher Appreciation and Support-Each committee member is assigned to a few grade levels to maintain constant communication between parents and teachers. The committee will also serve to support teachers on Teacher Appreciation Day.

    Volunteer Coordinator– Solicit an ongoing list of volunteers and create a database. Coordinate them with tasks matching their skills.
