Volunteer

All the activities offered by the PTA are organized and run by parent volunteers. We need you, YES YOU, to help with beloved programs like Project Cornerstone, activities like the Book Fair, and behind the scenes with event planning and communications. You have the power to make our school the best learning environment for all our kids.

For one time volunteer positions we will post information on Konstella for needed volunteers! Please make sure you are enrolled and receiving emails in Konstella to make sure you receive this info!

There are a few positions still open! If you are interested in a more scheduled and routine volunteer position, please check here.

Thank you for donating your time to Vargas. The PTA would not be possible without the dedication and time of all the volunteers! The PTA truly adds a memorable experience to the education of our children and enriches the school campus in so many ways!

For PTA members and non-members, please help us by keeping track of your volunteer hours. Use this link to fill out our online form. At the end of each PTA calendar year, we have to file volunteer hours with the state PTA to continue our status as a PTA. We all forget to add hours from time to time, but hopefully using this form and receiving emails from our historian on a regular basis will help!

If you are on campus and sign into the office in the volunteer binder you do not need to add your hours to this form!
