    Whether you have one hour a year or one day a week, you can be a part of making Grimsley a better place! Volunteering is a great way to become familiar with the school, meet other parents, and let your student know you care about his or her school.

    If you would like to become involved with any of the activities below, you may complete and return the Volunteer Sign-Up Form located on this web site, contact the officer or committee chair listed, or the PTSA President. The roster of officers and committee chairs is located on the PTSA website.
    Note: an asterisk * means that this is a PTSA Committee that may need members and/or leadership, as well as the specific help that is requested.

    Beautification

     If you see something blooming at Grimsley, chances are a Beautification Committee volunteer is responsible. (If you have a Boy or Girl Scout take note: improving the Grimsley grounds makes for a great Eagle or Gold Project). This PTSA Committee needs members who enjoy gardening and yard work. Additionally, two specific ways to help without serving on the committee:

    • “Tool Team" – we need a dozen or so Dads or Moms with Tools who can come two or three times a year to our Work Days. Students often help with these, but we need adults to keep them busy and provide hand tools. We also need power tools – blowers, weed-eaters, etc. Contact our Beautification Chair if you can be one of our Tool Team!

    • Pick a specific bed or spot on the campus to be responsible for maintaining – weeding, planting, and mulching to keep attractive. Contact the Chair and she will help you find a place to call yours.

    Dances

    The PTSA Grade Representatives work together to coordinate ‘coat check’ duty at the three major dances each year (Homecoming, Twirp and Junior/Senior Prom). (Dances are chaperoned by Grimsley staff). They need parents to help in two-hour shifts. Look for sign-up opportunities for each dance. Dances are usually from 8pm to midnight, and the dates are published in the Whirlwind.

    Hospitality (Jill Fisher, Reeves Sprange, Mandy Adamczak, Amy Kemp, Mimi Kemp, Jill Billing, Susan Aveline, Alison Barakat)

    For those who like to cook and provide other “treats,” the Hospitality Committee might be ideal. The chairs organize meals and refreshments for our deserving faculty several times a year, and they need a fleet of volunteers upon whom they can call for help. The staff comes to know and love the parents who take this task to heart! If you would like to be a part, contact the Co-Chairs.

    Media Center 

    The Media Center has a regular rotation of volunteers and welcomes more! Tasks include shelving and shelf reading, book processing, and organizing. Contact the School’s Media Center Specialist, Jen Worrells.

    Proctoring 

    Volunteers are needed several times during the year to proctor standardized tests. Look for announcements during the testing periods to sign up to help. 

    Project Graduation 

    Are you more of a single-project volunteer? Consider helping with Project Graduation. Project Graduation is an all night, alcohol- and drug-free celebration we organize for the night of graduation in order to help our seniors celebrate their success in a safe, but fun-filled environment. Since many seniors' parents have out-of-town guests, and many seniors would prefer to celebrate without their parents being present, we rely heavily on the participation of parents of underclassmen. Please help us keep this tradition alive by volunteering for one of the many jobs during the night. Parent volunteers usually have as much fun as the kids and keep coming back year after year.

    The PTSA Board needs fresh faces and new ideas year in and year out. The Board is composed of Officers, Committee Chairs, and various Representatives. See the PTSA Roster and PTSA Board Responsibilities elsewhere on the PTSA web site to get an idea of the different ways you can become involved. If you’d like to serve, contact the Nominating Chair or the PTSA President.
