Re-shelving Library Books – Mrs. Smith, our librarian, needs help re-shelving library books every week.  A total of approximately 5 hours of volunteer time are needed each week. Currently, Mrs. Smith is using her Saturday to re-shelve books – let’s help give her the weekend back! Volunteers are welcome to schedule a time with Mrs. Smith via email.

PTA Volunteers are ALWAYS Needed!

Volunteer-1Everyone has a skill to share and there is simply no volunteer role too small or too bigl! We want you to be an active part of our school – and we are just so thrilled that you want to help out at Stark in a way that best suits you, your time schedule, and your family. Whether you like to work with kids one on one in tutoring and/or mentoring roles; reading to students; stuffing Tuesday folders; making copies for teachers; helping out with book fairs and PTA events; doing data entry work in the office; taking photos at school events for the annual yearbook; tutoring small groups of children; helping out with the annual PTA auction; assisting with monitoring students during lunch; creating fliers; or doing Spanish translation … we for sure have a need that fits your time, abilities, and interests!
Remember, helping out Stark students in some capacity with the PTA doesn’t only support school wide goals and initiatives, but your participation in ongoing activities allows you a chance to feel more connected to your child and the school. Involvement in the PTA gives you, as the parent, an opportunity to learn more about the school, staff, events, and community. You’d be amazed at how many new neighborhood and community friends our parents make being involved at the school! Plus, studies continue to show that when parents and kids feel connected and integrated into the school environment … students perform better socially, emotionally, and academically! It is so wonderful to see how proud kids get of their parents when they see your participation, connection, and interest in the school.To find out how we can best match you with a school need, please e-mail us or contact us in the office at 972-968-3300. We look forward to getting to know you!
