Get Involved!

There are many ways to volunteer at Burbank.  There are regular opportunities at specific times during the school day including helping with library time for each class and ongoing flexible opportunities such as helping maintain the school veggie and flower gardens.  You can also get involved by planning or volunteering at PTA-sponsored event.  The Burbank Parent Teacher Association has two goals in mind when we plan events and activities. The first is to enrich the lives of Burbank students. The second goal is to help all families feel welcome, to feel connected to the school and to each other. Volunteering at school events helps parents build ties to other families and builds strong communities, while at the same time reinforcing the message to their children that school is valuable and important.

Throughout the school year, there are many ways for parents to volunteer at PTA-sponsored events, and volunteer opportunities are available for all levels of time commitment; during the school day or on evenings or weekends; and whether you want to take charge of organizing or just be handed a job to do. 

Look out for specific opportunities in PTA newsletters or email maryleeburbankpta@gmail.com for more information.


Attend a PTA Meeting or Community Night!

PTA meetings will be held virtually on the first Tuesday evening of every other month starting in Oct from 8-8:45pm.  Each meeting will include a ~15min update on PTA activities including a budget review, ~15min for general discussion and Q&A, and ~15min for a guest speaker or specific topic.  This is a great opportunity to learn what is going on around school, get acquainted with other parents, and learn how you might like to become more involved.  Please join us!  The link to join the Google Meet will be made available in a PTA newsletter prior to the meeting.  Meetings for the '22-23 school year will take place on Oct 4th, Dec 6th, Feb 7th, Apr 4th, and Jun 6th.
