All you need to do is to step forward, say that you can and you will! There will be people to support you. Fairmont PTA hopes to achieve so much more this year, and as it takes a lot of hard work on the part of parent volunteers, we need you to step up and lend a hand. Please look through these volunteering opportunities below and if anything catches your eye, fillout our volunteer survey. Or contact us at pta-volunteers@fairmontschool.org. Thank you!!!

Why Volunteer

On an individual level, when you join the PTA and volunteer for our events or programs, you will get the opportunity to know the environment that your child is in for a major part of their day. Seeing you involved also sends a clear message to your child that home and school are connected, and this inevitably promotes student success. By joining the Fairmont PTA, you will become part of the California PTA and the National PTA – the nation’s largest volunteer group that advocates for children.

The list of volunteering opportunities is long and ever-changing, but here are some of the major ones:

  • Room Parents
  • Gardening & School Beautification/Zero Waste Pilot
  • Grant Writing
  • Community Events

  • Family Math Night & Family Reading Night
