If children do learn what they live...then the students at Barringer are learning the true meaning of volunteerism from each member of the PTA. YOU have a talent that Barringer needs! We invite each and every adult, of all ages and genders, to join the Barringer PTA in support of the wonderful children here.

Barringer has a wide variety of volunteer options to suit your interests and scheduling requirements. Whether you like to coordinate events, work behind the scenes, tutor children, or help from your home there is an opportunity for you. Whether you help once a week or at one event - the choice is yours and everyone's help is welcome.

Our PTA relies on the time and talents of our teachers and families.
  • To volunteer to serve on a committee, contact the appropriate committee chair. Also, see the Officer and Chair Position Descriptions.
  • To learn more about volunteer roles within each committee, see our 2015-16 Volunteer Opportunities. (To sign up, download Volunteer Form and send to school in your child's folder.)
  • Busy Bee volunteer meetings will be held at school every Friday at 8:45 am. This is a casual group of volunteers who meet in the Parent Room (next to the office) to work on classroom "busy work" jobs such as cutting out shapes, laminating, or stapling worksheet packets. No regular commitment required, come when you are available and stay as long as you can!
