Family Support Needs


Volunteer Needs

BOOP’s vibrant Parent Steering Committee provides the main source of funding for the wonderful social events and programs offered each year. Individuals can contribute in various ways. Our parents are committed and actively involved in their children’s school community. Parents are needed and welcome to help in the classrooms during school hours. Check with your child’s teacher to volunteer for parent jobs.

Become involved with the BOOP Parent Group. Parent volunteers are needed for positions requiring year-long commitments, as well as positions that are shorter in a term. For example:

  • The Steering Committee is comprised of two co-chairs, a secretary, and a treasurer.

  • The Budget Committee

  • PTA Liaison

  • BOOP Newsletter: The quarterly newsletter is compiled by a parent volunteer. A newsletter is a great tool for keeping families informed and connected. Classrooms also need parent volunteers as newsletter coordinators.

  • Other positions include Bulletin Boards, Buddy Coordinator, Car Pool Coordinator, Fundraising, Web Master, Directory and E-Mail Lists, BOOP Tours, Social Events Chairs, Registration Packets, Classroom Coordinators.

BOOP Community Service Project: Food Pantry

BOOP has launched a new community service project to support the greater Bowman community. In collaboration with the school nurses, the parent volunteers in charge of this project have compiled a list of items needed to help children and families in our school who require assistance. So far, family groups have assembled care boxes containing items such as food, blankets, stuffed animals, specific clothing and/or household items. Our children develop a sense of understanding and empathy by participating in this outreach.

The food pantry can always use your donations! Check our wish list to view current needs:
