Volunteer Opportunities

PTA: Open Positions 2023-2024 School Year

We have a number of activities and events scheduled this year but we need your help to make them happen!  Some have larger time commitments and some have very little. If you think you might be interested, please contact us and we will be happy to meet with you about the responsibilities. Positions can be shared, if you would like to share the position with someone. 

Social Media Specialist:

Have you ever wanted to be a content creator? This person would run the Andrus Instagram and Facebook pages, post about events and reminders, and keep parents informed based on information given to you by the PTA Board.

Bulletin Board Decorator:

Update the bulletin board in the school as needed (about once a month) with events, fundraisers, and other pertinent information. 

Reflections Co-chair (Oct/Nov):

National PTA-sponsored talent/art showcase. The chair provides information to Andrus students and coordinates a display of entries and awards.  The chair would also choose volunteer judges for the entries from our school. The winners go on to the regional competition.

Staff Appreciation Co-chair:

Work with parents and community members to develop a schedule of events, activities, and gifts that show how much we care about our teachers and staff at Andrus.  Busy Season? May 6-10 is the main week, but we also do lunches, birthday treats, etc... for teachers and staff once each month.

Grants/Fundraising Coordinator:

We are interested in creating more partnerships with our local community and finding grant opportunities for larger projects we would like to fund such as a school playground improvement project. There are no specific requirements for this position yet, but generally we are looking for someone who is willing to reach out to people in the community to foster beneficial relationships with Andrus, and someone who is willing to research, write, and submit grant applications. Busy Season? No, there are partnership and grant opportunities throughout the year. 

Harvest Night at the Farmstead (Oct 30th): 

This event is already scheduled for Monday, October 30th from 4-8pm at Lowe Family Farmstead in Kuna.  The co-chair would help with flyers and possibly arrange for voting for a kiss the pig event at the farm. At this outdoor event, families can come to the Farmstead corn maze and pumpkin patch at a discounted price and do lots of the activities while earning some money for Andrus.

Holiday Breakfast & Honor Choir Performance Co-chairs (Dec)

Obtain sponsors for a simple breakfast and coordinate with Mr. Jones for the time of the performance.  We often do this at the same time as the school bookfair so adults can attend and purchase items the same day.

Kindness Night Co-Chair (Feb):

Work with the school counselor, Mrs. Dalos and the Andrus K-Kids  during kindness week at the school to plan an evening of service.

Bingo Night Co-Chair (Mar):

Help plan and coordinate an hour long Bingo night with prizes.

Art and STEM Night Co-Chair (Apr):

We already have chairs for this event, but would love a co-chair for both the Art showcase and the STEM activities. Art: this person would help display student art around the building, plan an art activity for the evening, and help with a school-wide art project. STEM: this person would help organize STEM activities, get volunteers, and help obtain sponsors for the night of the event.

Earth Day Co-Chair (Apr 22nd):

Help plan a 1 hour clean-up of school grounds after school. 

Jog-a-thon Co-chair (May):

We had great success with the jog-a-thon in 2023 and plan to do another one this year! This person would help get parent volunteers to mark laps, cheer kids on, and help with other logistics of the day.
