Volunteer opportunities will appear here as they become available.
GIVE THE GIFT OF TIME
The Great Falls Elementary PTA sponsored programs are fueled by our dedicated volunteers. PTA volunteers offer their time and talents to support the Great Falls Elementary community. Without volunteers, our organization would not exist, and enrichment and community outreach programs would not be available for our students and families.
The Great Falls Elementary PTA has a variety of volunteer opportunities to match your time and interests from one-time events to reoccurring commitments. Please also check our PTA Facebook page and weekly newsletters for any current volunteer opportunities.
