    Parent Volunteer Opportunities

    Lunch/Yard Duty
    If interested, please contact the office (575-2362).

    Mission PTA
    If your busy schedule does not allow you to be an executive board member or a committe chairperson (two can share a chair position), then please consider helping out at PTA events throughout the year when your schedule allows it.  Another way is to become a PTA Room Representative and you can share the responsibility with another parent. It's a great way to meet your child's friends and meet other parents.

    Thank you for volunteering your invaluable time to be a part of Mission's magic!
