Align your passions with PTSA!
Dedicated hearts of many volunteers makes our community stronger. The PTSA is recruiting board members and board directors for the 2022-23 school year. Let's explore how to align your passions with ways to support QAE! Lots of positions are open and can all be shared with a buddy! Here is our active recruitment list:
End of year pack up - Here's how you can help.
Our principals and teachers could use some helping hands to get QAE classrooms in ship-shape ready for next September. Volunteers are needed to help with organizing, sorting and boxing up supplies. This work will take place in empty rooms during the school day, and needs to be completed by June 17th. If you can offer a few hours of your time over the next few weeks, please email our volunteer coordinator, Jeanine MacQuarrie, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Indicating your general availability will be helpful. Preschoolers are welcome!
