Behind the Scenes Volunteer Opportunities
Escondido Elementary

Hello Escondido Families!


The PTA has several volunteer opportunities open.  We are looking for people willing to help! Many of the roles are behind the scenes; however, they make a huge impact on our students and parents.  Several of the tasks can be done at a time that is ideal for you, and not a specific date and time.   


Please take a moment and consider one of the following roles.  If you have questions, contact Chair of Volunteers, Amy McCarter or EVP, Julia Murphy-Chutorian.


Thank you,

Christine Klenow

PTA President
