The Herndon Elementary PTA is made up of volunteers who are willing to contribute some of their time to plan and support the events and programs at the school. We are so grateful to the individuals who donate their time and energy to make these possible!

We are always looking for new volunteers to get involved with our events, so please look at the list below and contact Alysia Troiano, VP of Volunteers, at herndonptavolunteers@gmail.com if you would like to help!

ONGOING NEEDS:

Aren’t sure you want to take it on yourself? Volunteer with a friend! The more, the merrier!

Club Coordinators: 
In order for a club to be offered through the PTA, it must have a PTA member volunteer willing to coordinate and receive PTA Board approval. If there is a club that you want to see for your child, please consider volunteering to make it happen! Volunteers who offer to run a PTA-sponsored club receive one free student registration per session of that club. Copy and send flyers home twice per session. Pick up payments from the office and fill out deposit form and leave for the PTA Treasurer. Email all parents a registration acknowledgement and any relevant class information about changes to the schedule, such as closings.  Notify teacher(s) and office staff of class roster.
