Valley Forge Elementary has a rich tradition of active parent involvement. All parents are invited and encouraged to be involved in PTO activities as all Services, Fundraisers, Socials and Clubs go to support the children and programs of Valley Forge.
The success of the VFES PTO (all of our families are members of the PTO) is dependent upon people who are enthusiastic about volunteering at our school. Parents can become personally involved through a large number of volunteer programs, either as a Chairperson of an activity or event, or as a general volunteer with one of our many events or committees.
Although the title “Chairperson” might sound a bit intimidating, these positions are well planned and usually come with instructions and samples of flyers or emails used by former chairpersons. Chairperson positions are also fun and a great way for you to become involved first hand in organizing and leading one of our VFES PTO Services, Fundraisers, Clubs and Social Events–not to mention the tremendous opportunities to interact with our faculty and students throughout the year.
There are many opportunities for parents who work either inside or outside the home. Parents with time during the day might consider volunteering for positions that require more time in school. Parents who work with computers might help by volunteering their time for positions that can be done from home, such as being a Club Administrator or a volunteer with the Publishing Center. There are many opportunities for everyone to volunteer at VFES.
If you are interested in volunteering, but are unsure of the expectations of a role, you can view a complete list of descriptions of all Chairperson and volunteer opportunities on the Positions Description page of this site. Any additional questions about positions or the time commitment involved can be directed to the VP of Volunteer Services board member at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whatever your own level of flexibility, the VFES PTO appreciates ALL of our parent volunteers and staff. Without you, we wouldn’t be able to accomplish all that we do.
