Time and Talent

The PTA is a volunteer organization and many of the activities in and around Bolton are supported, organized and provided by parents and friends of Bolton. If you have any interest in getting involved, sharing your story and talents, your time, or even moral support. We want you to join us however, wherever it best works for you and your student.

We need help with events, donations, supplies, readers, classroom volunteers and much more. Whether you can take time out to read a story, help with a classroom’s celebration activities, take on coordination of an event, or donate resources and materials, each and every level of assistance is greatly appreciated!

How do I volunteer in my child’s classroom?

Contact your child’s teacher via your child’s agenda or email and ask how you can volunteer.  Teachers’ volunteer needs vary from classroom to classroom.  All teachers need a room parent(s) to help with the facilitation of parties, etc. in the classroom as well as volunteers to help with items such as bulletin board creation, etc.

Many Ways to Support Bolton Academy

All successful kids have a community and school behind them. Take this opportunity to add your support to the success and growth of Bolton Academy and our kids! Not all of us have the funds or the time to help at any and all events, but even the smallest effort has the greatest impact. Please consider getting involved however and wherever you can.
