Daniel Bagley is fortunate to have a community of families who give time and resources generously to help make the PTA successful. Participating in your child’s school is a great way to meet other families, to use your skills to benefit the school, and to have some fun. There are many ways to get involved. These can come in the form of donations of your time and talents, or in the form of financial participation.

There are many on-going opportunities including:

  • Art Walk – Serve on the committee that coordinates the annual student art show/ potluck in May or June. Hang artwork, setup tables for potluck, help recruit volunteer help, etc. (Co-Chairs Melanie BurchLeslie Muto, and Kathy Scott)
  • Book Fair – Help set up and sell books during the yearly book fair events to raise funds for the school library.  (Co-Chairs June Lembo and Laura Tiberio)
  • Classroom Liaison – Be the contact person for your child’s individual classroom when information is needed for PTA functions. Year long, one or two parents per classroom.
  • Clip n’ Chat – Join other parents as we work on teacher projects and assemble the weekly “kid mail.” This volunteer opportunity works well for parents who are watching younger siblings. Drop in when you’re able – Thursdays, 7:55-9:55am in the first Boys and Girls Club portable. (Chair Beth Gongaware)

You can also help plan the adults-only, post-campaign celebration that we will host in May 2015. (Campaign Co-Chairs Wendy Stauff and Keri Pravitz)
