Volunteering is fun & exciting but most of all, rewarding on so many levels!

Thank you to all the volunteers at Buckhorn Elementary. We would not be a successful PTA without your help and support!  And thank you in advance to all parents & family memebers for reaching out to find out more about how you can help!

Buckhorn Elementary takes pride in consistently achieving high education standards, providing a safe and rich learning environment, and having a strong volunteer base within our community. Without our volunteers, Buckhorn wouldn’t be the same! Your time and talents, no matter how much or how little, make a difference in our school!

10 Reasons to Volunteer:

  1. Volunteers allow our teachers to stay focused in the classroom.
  2. Our children feel proud and happy to see their family members at school, and research indicates that involved families produce higher achieving student performance.
  3. Role Model! Buckhorn Bears grow up having a strong altruistic attitude by observing you volunteer.
  4. Volunteers have fun and love seeing their students in the school environment.
  5. Thousands of studies have proven that volunteering makes people happy and reduces stress. It is a very rewarding way to spend your extra time.
  6. Helps build your resume. We can match your interest and abilities to further enhance your life experience all while helping your school.
  7. Volunteering brings our learning community together, promotes networking and pride.
  8. Make friends! We all have a common bond, we care about creating the best possible educational experience for our children.
  9. You will have a chance to learn the innerworkings of our school.
