Thanks for your interest! We’re always on the lookout for event volunteers, parents with special technology and design skills, marketers, development specialties, lunch volunteers, or anyone who has a few extra hours to help with event coordination. Everyone is essential and everyone’s help counts.
We ask every family to contribute eight hours of volunteer time to BNS. It’s easy. Just pick an event or campaign that works for you.
Along with our Annual Appeal, we would love to see 100% volunteer participation from the parents of BNS.
The best way to stay up to date with volunteer opportunities is checking the weekly newsletter sent out every Sunday (check your promo folder to make sure it’s getting to you.)
If you are interested in helping out with any of our yearly fundaising and community building events, email the PTA (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your name, child’s name & classroom, and a little note about how you might like to volunteer.

Within the first month of school starting, teachers in each class will ask for one or a few parents to volunteer to become “class parents”. Class parents are an essential link between the teacher and the rest of the class parents, communicating events and processes, organizing volunteers and chaperones for class trips, helping to collect ideas and money for class gifts.
Class trips are an important part of your child’s curriculum and definitely important for community building. Class trips cannot happen without an adequate number of parent chaperones. Please plan to make yourselves available for as many class outings as possible. Also, it is very important that the minimum number of parents required to accompany a class on a trip also accompany the class back to school safely.
Committees are a great way to focus on a special interest you have and contribute to a thriving school. These are the committees that are currently active, but feel free to suggest your own.
