The PTA helps coordinate and publicize volunteer needs that range from one-time brief tasks to year-long commitments. Without the thousands of hours contributed by students, staff, parents and other community members, Thurgood Marshall wouldn’t be the outstanding school it is.
If you have a special talent to contribute, let us know! OR, if you want to be called when need arises, contact Volunteer Coordinator Ann McNally at email@example.com.
Note: The Seattle School District requires all volunteers to 1) Submit a completed Volunteer Application Form with background check prior to working with students, and 2) Complete a brief online course on Adult Sexual Misconduct Prevention online at http://tiny.cc/asmsps. The application is available in the school office or online.
