GPES Volunteer for 2019-2020 School Year

Your Garrett Park PTA needs volunteers to support our programs and events!

Whether you are a veteran volunteer, or brand new to the school, whether you have many hours through out the year to give or you wish to volunteer one time, your help is welcome and needed.  Training and support will be provided for all positions. 

Our goal is to have all PTA programs and events led by Co-Chairs and run by teams so that the workload is more manageable and fun for everyone.

Have questions or want to learn more? Your 2019-2020 PTA Leadership Team would love to hear from you!
