Southwood Elementary School Volunteers

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. 
 -Winston Churchill

Volunteers play an important role in our mission "to make every child's potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children." Volunteers assist in all areas of Southwood Elementary PTA and can be involved in various activities that represent their talents and desires to help aid in children's education, parent involvement & community engagement.

Take photos or videos at our events and submit them to the PTA

Don't let the title scare you; we are not necessarily looking for a professional photographer. The office PTA sanctioned title is Historian. We are looking for people who attend any school event to take pictures (with a phone or camera) and submit them to us. Why? So many times the organizers of an event spend the majority of their time walking around & working; we never get to see the whole picture. Its also nice to document the things we do at and for the school. If you are willing to snap a few pics at our events we would greatly appreciate it.
