PTA Volunteers

Thank you! We are fortunate to have a great group of parents who are willing to get involved and donate  time and energy to improve our school. 

Johns Hopkins University identifies “Volunteering” as one of the essential ways a parent can contribute to a student’s success at school. Barron Park School and  PTA have many volunteer opportunities, some that bring parents on campus to serve students directly, and some working with other parents on school-related projects – all of which are designed to support students and our school. Being on campus is especially beneficial for parents so you can experience all of the wonders  Barron Park!
