Available PTA Board Positions
Full support from the Glendale Council, First District, and California State PTAs, as well as free training, are offered to everyone taking on a board position. Most current board members will also be available, in person or virtually, to help transition the new board, and assist as often as we can. This is a great opportunity to acquire new skills and help continue all the work the PTA does for our children. For more information, and for more elected board opportunities, please click here.
If you are interested in helping to keep the PTA or have any questions about the positions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Please note that any person can hold any position, but they can only do so for a maximum of 2 years.

How to Get Involved
School Volunteers and Visitors
All school/parent volunteers MUST HAVE a TB clearance, prior to their first day of volunteer work. A TB test must be done every 4 years. Before volunteering, you must bring in proof of your TB test to the school office. Check with the school office for information regarding fingerprinting if that is necessary. Proof of covid vaccinations may also be required, but please check with the school office to verify.
All school/parent visitors must check in with the office, sign in, and show valid photo ID to receive a badge to enter campus.
Ways to get involved:
What does a chairperson do exactly? The role depends on the individual, but generally speaking, you oversee other volunteers to ensure the planning, organization, procedures, and tasks are all completed, and completed on time, so there are no hiccups with hosting. You ensure the event is not listed on our insurance list as activites that are not allowed, and fill out a simple, contact Dr Bixler regarding setting the date, and fill out a simple, one-page facility use form. Some events can be run by a chair or co-chair on their own, while others have larger groups of volunteers.
Do I need to be a chairperson or a co-chairperson to get involved? Of course not! We need volunteers who will happily help make an event happen but who are not necessarily the ones in charge. We do need a chairperson for every event to make it happen, but volunteers are the magic behind the scene ensuring everything comes together. For more events, there is work that can be done from home, and other tasks that require you to be on campus, but you can pick and choose tasks to fit your schedule.
Always remember, we view your family and work time as vital, and PTA never comes before either. You are a volutneer, and as such, you do the best you can, and that is all we, or anyone, can ask of you.
