PTA Needs Your Help! 

It is that time of the year again when the PTA is looking for next year's volunteers to step up (or point us in another's direction) and help continue helping make Echo Lake great. We need help filling the following… 

Treasurer: (training next year for the following 2 years) Do you have any experience with Quickbooks/accounting/bookkeeping OR want to have it on a resume? PTA is looking for a treasurer. Experience not required but makes it way easier cause you know how to do it. Can also be used as reference for future jobs if you want to do more of it. We would love to hear from you. Our wonderful Michael had zero experience and figured it out. So some experience is awesome but not necessary.  

Vice President (1yr VP then President the next): What does the PTA president and vice president do? My main job is touching bases. I make sure people have what they need to do their "jobs". I communicate with the school and staff if something comes up. I chat with kids and parents and try to make them feel welcome. Yes, I check emails and try to find answers if needed (my goal is once a day). I have to copy and paste agendas once a month. Overall, not rocket science. Am I perfect? No, but I do my best. If you are willing to step up and help make Echo Lake awesome, please let us know. 

Parent Drama Producer:  Next year is our amazing Shauna’s last year at Echo Lake, so if your child has a passion for drama we would love 2 people to take over the role that Shauna did alone. She has it all organized and laid out. Next year you could shadow her and learn the ropes. We want to continue having drama at Echo Lake and we can’t without this role.  

Science Night: After next year we will also be losing our two Science Night gurus. Tyan and Beckie’s kids will be moving on to Einstein. The experienced Brian Shirts stepped up as lead but he needs a co-chair to help with the event. This too is organized completely with exactly how to do it and when. One nice thing is that getting the presenters can be done via email during the summer. The list is made, it is just a matter of confirming availability and dates. No recreating the wheel here. 

Spirit Wear: We need someone to help figure out new Echo Lake spirit gear next year! Have an idea that you think would be cool? Come help make it happen.  This job is a great one for over the summer and then just a bit in the fall and then it’s done. 

Volunteer Coordinator: Organize who signs up to help and then pass out the info for those who need it. 

Other: If you have a passion and want to get involved, while roles might technically be filled, the more the merrier. Or stepping up gives others a chance to try new things and change positions. Or two people make for 1. More fun and 2. Easier job for everyone. 

Some of the chairs are: Fundraising, socials, family services (WORKS/food drive), legislative, reflections, volunteer coordinators, membership, staff appreciation  

Any help is amazing and needed.
