Current Volunteer Opportunities

Greely PTO Leadership Positions
Each year, in early spring we post open positions and begin recruiting volunteers to serve on our board for the following school year. Interested now? We'd love to hear from you! There's always room on our committees to help plan and implement PTO enrichment events and activities. 

Serving on the Board provides volunteers with the opportunity to:
  • Connect and roll up your sleeves with other Greely parents.
  • Create events and efforts that foster the development of a vibrant school community. 
  • Raise funds to support enrichment activities for Greely students K-8.
  • Recruit and coordinate volunteers to help support the successful implementation of PTO events and activities.

Are you a detail-oriented and organized person? The Treasurer ensures the accurate and timely management of Greely PTO's funds. This position will be mentored by our current Treasurer. Primary responsibilities include:
  • updating the organization's budget as needed;
  • writing checks to fulfill all reimbursement and enrichment funding requests;
  • deposit all funds received;
  • reconcile all bank accounts;
  • prepare monthly treasurer's reports for PTO Board meetings;
  • pay any applicable state taxes and accompanying reporting and record keeping;
  • file informational tax return by December 15 of each year;
  • generate and send thank you notes for contributions received.
Interested in this role? Send us an email and we can chat more!

Calling all event planners! Are you an outgoing and organized person who loves to coordinate the details that make for a successful and fun event? This is the position for you!

We are seeking one more Events Chair to join our Events Team. The following are some of the key responsibility areas:
  • Make recommendations for events for MIW & GMS; 
  • Partner with principal(s) and other school representatives as needed when scheduling the event dates and location(s);
  • Identify volunteer positions needed to support the events so our Volunteer Chair can recruit the right people for the job; 
  • Coordinate details as necessary and attend the events to ensure their success. 
Some examples of the PTO Events in which you would be involved: 
  • The Grand Event (A special night at Mabel I Wilson that brings students and their grandparents (or "grand friends") to tour the school and enjoy special activities and snacks.)
  • Fill-A-Bus Fill-A-Belly (A GMS-sponsored event in which the events team helps coordinate the filling of a Greely school bus with provisions for our local food pantry.)
  • Movie Nights (What's cozier than PJs and popcorn in the school auditorium? Help plan a movie night for the MIW and another for GMS 4th and 5th graders.)
  • Staff Appreciation Week (Show teachers some love by coordinating special thank you treats on behalf of parents)
  • Poetry Jam (Lights, cameras, action! Help plan the details for a night of fun and poetry as K-5 students read their poems to an audience.)

Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities 
The PTO runs on "parent power." We simply couldn't make field trips and enrichment events for students K-8 possible without you! Whether it's volunteering a shift at "The Grand Event" or making a healthy snack for the "Poetry Jam," it all adds up to a brighter and more vibrant school experience for our children.  We'll post specific needs as they arise, but if you know you'd like to volunteer, send us an email.
