Special Volunteer Recognition

SSPTA would like to recognize these amazing volunteers for their willingness to donate their time to our student body!  A special thank-you to our Mustang Store volunteers – without your dedication and generosity, the kids would not have gotten such a fantastic and rewarding experience.  We heard such positive feedback from the school administration, teachers, parents, and, of course, students.  THANK YOU!

4. List of Volunteer Needs
Did you know you can volunteer any amount of time to PTA?  We have volunteer opportunities that take as little as 30 minutes a month.   We also have larger options, including leadership roles, for those who are interested.
Did you also know that YOU can volunteer?  We accept parents, guardians, caregivers, grandparents, big sisters, older brothers, cousins, aunts and uncles, and even neighbors or family friends!  You can volunteer at home or on campus (after a brief training).  If you know someone who might be interested in volunteering, please forward them our newsletter or have them get in touch with us directly via email.  (President@sspta.org
We have an immediate need for volunteers in the following areas.  If you are available and would like to donate your time, regardless of how much or how little you have to give, please reach out to the contact listed below:

  • Children’s Holiday Shop (12/04-12/08) – We are seeking a few volunteers who would like to pre-wrap presents (at home or at school; we can provide the wrapping paper), and we are also looking for quite a few volunteers to “staff” the store (helping students choose appropriate gifts for the loved ones on their lists, restocking inventory, and running the cash register). We may also need help with shopping, set-up, and clean-up. – Chair, Jeanette James (mrsjdjames@yahoo.com


  • Subcomité de Familias Que Hablan Español – Un noche de lotería? – Presidenta, Claudia Pineda (klaudette26@gmail.com)


  • Inclusion Committee (ongoing) – We are putting together a small group of parents and teachers who would like to advise the PTA on how we can be more inclusive, especially for students in our SDC and AUT programs.  These volunteers are also looking into how we can better inform our families of the accommodations that are available or that may be requested. – Chair, Karen Preciado (hiedi2@aol.com
