Diamond PTA Volunteer Opportunities!

The Diamond PTA Board is looking for a few more volunteers to help out! Please contact us at diamondpta@gmail.com if you are interested in these positions or have any questions.

Social Committee Chair

With the Social Committee, plan parent social event(s), work with the grade level reps to help plan grade level social activities for kids and/or parents, set up morning principal coffees, and organize evenings with the principal (provide light refreshments at the home of a parent host) (Board position).

Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) Liaison

Attend SHAC meetings several times a year and report back to the PTA board on events and information from those meetings that are relevant to the Diamond community (Board position).

Daily Announcements Volunteers

 We’re looking for a few people to send the Diamond Daily Announcements out to Diamond families. Takes less than 5 minutes a day.  Some previous experience of working with MSA (My School Anywhere) would be helpful but not essential.  Additionally, it would be ideal if one volunteer to could act as back up for the Weekly Newsletter (non-Board positions).

Lunchtime Compost And Recycling Volunteers

  • When: Wednesdays, from September 12, 10:45am - 12:15pm 
  • Where: Diamond Cafeteria

A Great New Parent Volunteer Opportunity!  This year Diamond students will be composting and recycling their lunch waste one day a week with a little help from YOU!
We have taken the cue from Clarke Middle School (who is now composting and recycling every school lunch day) and are starting a lunchtime compost and recycle day on Wednesdays only. We started with a successful pilot in June 2018 and would like to continue the program into the new school year. All the elementary feeder schools compost and recycle at lunch, so we are striving to keep the student awareness and knowledge about how we should manage our waste at lunchtime.
The 90 minute shifts are on Wednesdays from 10:45am - 12:15pm starting September 12.  Volunteers help the custodians set-up the recycling stations and work with the student volunteers to educate the students about where to place their waste items. Three parent volunteers each Wednesday would be ideal.
Please contact the Diamond Green Team at greenteamdiamond@gmail.com with questions and your availability - once every one/two/four week(s). Thank you for considering this opportunity to connect with the vibrant Diamond School community (including your child) and help our students to become environmentally responsible citizens!
