Open Volunteer Positions

2018-19 School Year

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! As you know, Bubb School relies heavily on parent volunteers to help deliver a wonderfully well-rounded education to our kids. So we need your help!

Below are the PTA jobs for which we need volunteers to help next year. If you are interested in one of the individual roles or committee positions below, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Vinita Alwyn (bubbvolunteer@gmail.com) or sign up on Konstella.

Fundraising

Walkathon & Silent Auction: This is our biggest fundraiser of the year. Sign-up to be an apprentice or lead in one of the following areas:

Urgent WATSA Openings

  • Food Co-Lead (1 needed): On the day of the event, direct parent volunteers and Graham students at Cub Cafe.
  • Craft Corner Co-Lead: Manage craft donations leading up to event, busiest time starts 2 weeks before. Set up Craft Corner before event. Manage sales at Craft Corner during event. Take down at end of event.
  • Replenishment Co-Lead (1-2 needed) We have 2 water and orange stations along the walking route. Replenishment Co-Leads manage an orange cutting party the morning of the event. Then they make sure those two stations have enough water and oranges throughout the event. The Replenishment volunteers may need to do some heavy lifting. Also need to supervise Graham student volunteers. *Need 2 co-leads to work from 4:00-7:00. The earlier shifts are already filled and they will provide the necessary training before WATSA day.
  • Auction Event Management Co-lead: Oversee the auction setup and bidder sheets, and coordinate the item procurement at checkout.
