Orion PTA



Welcome to the PTA Webpage!

The PTA is a vital part of the Orion community!  The PTA provides the school community with family activities, such as Grandparents' Ice Cream Social, Donuts with Dad, Paint Night, Movie Night, and Muffins with Mom throughout the year, as well as fundraisers to assist with various needs around the school.  Without parent volunteers to run the PTA, the PTA cannot serve the school community.

The PTA is in need of volunteers!  We need to fill a couple of positions on the PTA Board for next school year.

The PTA is in need of parents to fill the following positions:

  • Vice-President:  Be the President's right hand; know the President's role and be able to fill in as needed, be familiar with the work of the PTA and its bylaws, maintain effective communication with other Board members and committees, attend monthly PTA meetings and occasional PTA Board member meetings.  **Average time commitment:  1-2 hours monthly. 
  • Treasurer:  Receive and deposit all money for the organization, keep complete and accurate financial record of receipts and expenditures, use expense voucher system and issue checks in accordance with approved budget, attend monthly PTA meetings and present a written financial statement, attend occasional PTA Board member meetings, maintain updated membership list and submit State and National membership dues, prepare information necessary for audit and IRS reports, be familiar with the work of the PTA and its bylaws, maintain effective communication with other Board members.  **Average time commitment:  2-3 hours monthly.

Current officers will work with any new Board members during the summer to provide assistance with learning the positions, as well as information on PTA events and activities.  In addition, the National PTA Organization has online training courses to help new officers learn about running a PTA organization.  If you are interested in being a PTA Board member or have questions, please contact Jennifer Gordon at ptaorion@gmail.com.

Your Orion PTA is in need of volunteers!
