Volunteer Opportunities with the PTA

Please consider volunteering for the PTA!


A. Before/After school program coordinator – we do have 2 classes schedule with the vendor for the Fall 2016.  But, if no one is able to coordinate the registration from the parents at BeechTree, we will have to cancel these classes / won’t have any enrichment programs.  Please let Michelle Whitecar (president@beechtreepta.com) if you are interested in this job.
B. Book Fair Co Chairs – this is one of our 3 PTA fundraisers for the year.  It is scheduled for Wednesday, November 9 to Friday, November 11, 2016.  Again, we need 2 people to run the event at Beechtree (of course, this does not mean that you have to do everything by yourself!  Many volunteers help with this).  But, if no one from Beechtree coordinates, we will have to cancel the book fair.
C. PTA Vice President – assists President, as needed.  No specific assigned duties.  Per our by laws, we do not have to have a VP, but is a great way to get involved and understand the interworkings of the PTA and how much we do to support all the students and our fabulous teachers!
D. Fun Fair Co chairs – although this is a spring event, we do begin planning in the late Fall.  This is our biggest fundraiser of the year.    If we do not have organizers, we would have to cancel this event.  if this is cancelled, the PTA would most likely have to explore other fundraising avenues (ex. selling items which BT does not currently do) for 2017-2018 as no profit from this fundraiser would leave our bank account with not enough money to fund the 2017-2018 school year activities

Beechtree Book Fair

As you may know, Beechtree is holding a book fair next week (Mon, 6/6-Fri, 6/10).   We are in danger of having to cancel the book fair as we do not have enough volunteers for the event.  Beechtree earns rewards for every sale and uses them to buy deeply discounted books and other items that the school may need.   PLEASE consider donating some of your time so that we can make this event happen!  Here is the url where you are able to sign up for a shift.
