Volunteer Opportunities

Many Hands Make Light Work.

Welcome to another action-packed, fun-filled year of learning and growing at McKinley Elementary!

There are many activities and events that are made possible by the PTA throughout the school year, and we need your help to make them successful.

Browse through this website to view event/program details and learn how you can contribute.

Contact volunteer coordinator, Vedini Wiese (vedini@gmail.com), if you have questions or ideas about how you can help!

Current Volunteer Needs

BAKERS Needed for Holiday Cookie Carry!

The Annual PTA Staff Appreciation Cookie Carry is Friday, Dec. 13th. This is a perfect way to volunteer without a huge time commitment and to show our staff how much we appreciate them! Just bake a few batches of your favorite cookies and deliver them to the staff lounge; families may drop off cookies in the staff lounge from 3:45-6pm on Thursday, December 12th or from 7-11am on Friday, December 13th.

Please package cookies in non-breakable, airtight containers and attach a copy of the recipe.  If you need your containers returned, please label both top and bottom with your student’s full name, grade and homeroom teacher.

Looking for a Few More Room Parents!

Updated 11/12/19: We have a few vacancies in the Room Parent roster and are looking for interested candidates. (Note that we usually assign two people to each classroom, so you would not be taking this on by yourself!) If you’re interested or if you have questions, please contact Janine Spiro at janinespiro@gmail.com.

Want to Help Preserve McKinley’s Grounds?

This summer I received a question from a parent who remembers that in years past (before the McK building renovation), a group of family volunteers met periodically on weekends to clean up and beautify the school grounds. If there’s interest in reviving this initiative, we’ll need one or two parents willing to spearhead the effort.

Contact Mary (marykadera@gmail.com) if you’re interested.

Enrichment Co-Chair Needed

We’re on the hunt for someone to co-chair After-School Enrichment this school year. If you’d like to help arrange this array of amazing after-school experiences for McK students, we could use your help!

It involves promoting the registrations window for each of the three sessions; picking the enrichment classes that will be offered each session; and serving as a point person for Baroody, the company that manages most of the enrichment logistics.

Please contact Mary (marykadera@gmail.com) if you’re interested.
