WHAT WE DO
Ramsey PTA has a number of volunteer committees. We have both year-round and one-time opportunities. All of our committees depend on volunteer leadership and are subject to change due to commitment/interest levels fluctuating year to year. If you’d like to do something you don’t see here, please contact the PTA to discuss your ideas. Where there’s a will, there’s a way!
