PTC Volunteer Opportunities: We Need You!
The Broadmeadow PTC relies entirely on volunteers to raise funds and deliver programs and events that enrich our children's education and build school community. We can only succeed with your time, energy and great ideas! Whether you give an hour, an afternoon, or more--we are grateful for your time. Without parent volunteers we are unable to offer these events!
Please check any of the committees that interest you. A committee chair will contact you with more information about the type of help needed and the time commitment. You can then decide if the opportunity is a good fit for you. With such a wide range of activities, there is a committee that meets every schedule and interest. Questions? Contact Rachel Bright at
Please fill out the following section with your contact information so that our committee chairs know how to reach you.
