Volunteer as Needed
For those with a desire to help but not enough time to make a regular commitment, we are always looking for more hands! This could be helping staff a teacher appreciation brunch, baking cookies for carnival, or any number of other small contributions that help our PTO run smoothly and provide support to students, teachers, and staff. Make sure you're getting our emails to stay informed about upcoming volunteer opportunities.
Become a Member-at-Large
Members-at-large are "official" members of ZPTO. They help with all the planning and organizing that goes on behind the scenes, head up committees, and attend most meetings. In order to become a member-at-large you must attend one of our first two meetings in a given school year. You can find info about our regular meeting schedule here.
Run for the Board
The PTO Board is the heart of ZPTO. It's a lot of work but also very rewarding! The Board sets the budget, works to determine teacher and staff needs, votes to allocate funds for community activities and school needs and makes all the "big" decisions. Elections are held every year and board members may serve in a role for two consecutive years.
Other Types of Support
There are SO MANY ways you can support ZPTO without having to ever attend a meeting! We partner with many businesses to help fund our PTO mission and goals. Everything from shopping on Amazon to ordering a pizza can help support our school.
