Volunteers

  • Lees Corner Elementary School and the PTA cannot function without the help of the community.  Most volunteer opportunities are one-time only and take as little as two hours of your time.  Please take the time this year to consider how you can help with a large event or participate on a committee.  Whether you are a member of the PTA or not, you can sign up to help.   Volunteers are needed throughout the year so consider finding 3 opportunities to help out this year.
