The Nanuet Elementary PTA operates solely on a volunteer basis. All of our events, programs, and fundraisers would not be possible without parents donating their time to help out.
Below is our list of committees for which we need chairs, co-chairs, and volunteers. Please take a look and see if there is a committee (or committees) that’s a fit with your schedule.
Short on time? There are so many different ways to get involved! While most committee work requires the ability to be at the school, some committee work can be done from home. If you work full time, coach, work nights, are in school, or are a stay at home caregiver, and would still like to help out, let us know and we will find a spot for you!
Don’t know what to do right now? Put your name on our Volunteer Call List! When committee chairs find they require more assistance they will contact you. You can decide then if you are available to help.
