VOLUNTEER
2022-23 Open Positions

Get involved on campus by volunteering for the PTA! Beverly PTA has open positions for next year and we are looking for parents who want to join in and help our school continue to be a great place. Becoming a volunteer is one of the most rewarding ways to show support for the children and staff. Below are some positions that we are looking to fill ASAP. Please contact Allison McFarland at abmcfarland@gmail.com if you would consider doing it or have any questions. 

Arts in Education Chair:  This position is responsible for promoting and executing the Reflections program at Beverly and recognizing eligible, participating students. Reflections is a National PTA program that recognizes student artists. This work will occur primarily in the fall semester. 

Council Delegate: This individual would attend the meetings of the Plano Council of PTAs and act as a representative of the Beverly PTA at the district level. They would then report back to the Beverly PTA with a brief summary of district meetings. 

Environmental Chair: This individual would plan Walk to School Days once in the fall and once in the spring. This position could also be expanded to include having an Eco Club at Beverly again or organizing litter clean up and projects in the school garden. 

Financial Reconciliation Committee

***only 1 more volunteer needed***

Want to volunteer but don’t have time or energy for an ongoing commitment, especially during the busy school year? We have the perfect opportunity for you! In July, we have four PTA volunteers meet to review our finances for a financial reconciliation. 

What’s awesome about it: 

  • Don’t have to battle busy school schedules
  • Time and day (as long as it’s in July) can be selected by the committee members 
  • FREE meal provided by the PTA while you volunteer In most cases can be finished in about 4 hours, in one sitting 
  • Don’t have to be an accountant! Anyone can do it. 
  • You’re helping the PTA, because we are required to do this every year!

What a great way to make friends with other parents! Please email treasurer@beverlypta.com or president@beverlypta.com to volunteer or with any questions. Thanks for your support!
