Volunteering

Get Involved — Volunteer!

When adults volunteer, all students benefit! There are many opportunities for parents and community members to get involved!  Your help is needed!  Complete the Volunteer Interest form and we will be in touch with you. 

We have many programs that are one time events, or are spread throughout the school year.  However, both categories entail advanced planning by parent volunteers.  Many of which enjoy seeing the smiles on the students faces from being able to partake in it.  Or from seeing their parents making a display of positive involvement with their school.

Even if you do not believe you can fully commit to an event until the week/day of the activity, please sign up anyway.  In years past we have had to send SOS emails requesting parent involvement to make an activity happen for our students.

We have quite a few opportunities to chair, or co-chair with a fellow parent, to even just helping out...

Weekly events are loaded on our home page.  And the calendar has most of the tentative programs scheduled.


* Per TUSD, all volunteers are required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 (minimum two boosters) or will be required to submit a weekly negative Covid test from a medical professional to the front office. *

 

TRE Volunteer Opportunities

The PTA Volunteer Program is one of the best ways that parents can support the students and staff at our school.

Please review the brief descriptions of each volunteer area and indicate your preliminary interests. Your contact information will then be forwarded to the PTA board member or committee chair that is pulling together that activity and they will be in touch with you.

Thanks for volunteering!
