We strive to make a difference. The heart of Oak Ridge PTA is to create the kind of school community where teachers and administrators can do their best work – and so can our children. We provide support for teachers in and out of the classroom. We provide resources they need. We help create learning opportunities for children. And we try to help the staff build the kind of supportive, caring atmosphere that makes school fun.
We want to work with you. We encourage creative ideas, and we’re thrilled to have people take on tasks that meet their skills and interests. People are often reluctant to volunteer, because they are afraid they’ll get pulled into a black hole of never-ending time commitment. That won’t happen here. An hour or two a semester really makes a difference. We won’t push you to commit to more than you desire.
Volunteering is fun. We enjoy what we do. We accomplish a great deal, and while everything we do isn’t a piece cake – it isn’t rocket science either. We try not to take ourselves too seriously, and we try to laugh as much as possible along the way.
We love our kids, our school, and our amazing staff. We enjoy having the opportunity to serve along side them to help all of our children meet their potential.
Please consider joining PTA at Oak Ridge. You will be glad you did.
