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

We are always looking for new volunteers to get involved with our events, so please look at the list below and contact Jenny Kimsey, VP of Volunteers, at [email protected] if you would like to help!
