  • Fulfilling school volunteer needs for events like school pictures, Twain Community Night, and Field Day.
  • Hosting staff appreciation events and sponsoring the Twain Teacher/Staff Member of the Month.
  • Awarding PTA Mini-Grants to teachers and clubs.

Volunteer at Twain

Are you interested in becoming more involved with the PTA?  Do you have special skills or some great ideas?  There are many different ways that parents can help the PTA, from helping to plan events, helping with Spirit Wear, or serving on a committee.  No contribution is too small…if you would be willing to help the PTA or are curious as to what jobs are available, please contact the PTA President at @email or the Membership & Volunteer Coordinator at @email.

The Twain PTA offers a wide range of volunteer opportunities for parents and guardians.  Volunteers are essential to the success of our programs…we cannot do all that we do without parent help!  Please consider giving of your time.  Some of the volunteer opportunities include:

  • Baking for school events, such as Mark Twain’s birthday celebration
  • Assisting with school pictures, gym uniform distribution, hearing & vision screenings, the Turkey Trot, and more
  • Selling Spirit Wear and concessions at events
  • Being a committee member to help plan/coordinate events and programs

We send out volunteer requests via emails. We appreciate as much help as your schedule allows!  For questions and to be added to our volunteer list, please email the Membership & Volunteer Coordinator, at @email.
