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 the Volunteer Coordinator 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.

BULLPUP DADS … and Bullpup uncles, grandfathers, adult siblings, etc. (even Bullpup aunties!) help classroom teachers with a wide variety of tasks and connect with kids as positive role models.
PARKING LOT FLOW DIRECTORS If you drive your student to or from school, you know why we need this! Please contact Ms. May to coordinate.
CLASS CONNECTORS Does your child’s classroom have one? If not, step up! Most duties involve email communication to other parents in your student’s room. Email: email@example.com.
PTA POSITIONS Rewarding opportunities that make a huge difference to our school. Job descriptions available for most posts. Most options can be shared with another volunteer! To learn more (no obligation!), email firstname.lastname@example.org.
