Parent Volunteer Opportunities

1.     Fundraising- To assist in many areas as needed. These needs will be specified, depending on the particular fundraiser that the PTO puts on.
2.     Hospitality - Several times during the school year, the PTO hosts an event (i.e. teacher appreciation luncheon, etc.) that requires baked goods or other refreshments. Volunteers can sign-up to help provide these goodies and work the events.
3.     Dinner Nights - Assist with Dinner Night Coordinators, in putting on 3-4 Dinner Nights a year, help with setup, serving or clean up.
4.     Picture Day – Picture days require some volunteers to help with students, or help the photographer in any way.
5.     Health Fair- To assist with various health-related screenings for our students. This event is held in the fall.
6.     Book Fairs – Held two times a year at most, the school librarian needs a few volunteers to help with manning the cash register, making sales, keeping the books and other items neat on display and generally being present during open hours of the Book Fair.
7.     Proctoring- Proctors for End-of-Grade testing are always needed over the course of the 2-3 days of testing. Proctor shift is generally in the morning, 8 a.m. till noon, on average.
8.     Spring Event – Every other year, NWR hosts a Talent Show, or participates in hosting the NWR vs. NBMS Staff Volleyball game.  Help is needed in many arenas, including ticket sales, concessions, set up, clean up.
9.  “One Time Projects”- There are several times during the school year when volunteers are needed for “One Time” Projects”. As the PTO receives requests from staff or PTO committees for volunteers, they call parents that have checked this option and may be available for a short, one-time task.
