Sign-ups

There are still many vacancies for PTA Committee Chair positions.  Make sure to go online to sign up to volunteer!  CLICK HERE to sign up!

If we do not get a volunteer for an event/program, we will need to cancel it.  

Volunteer Training

If you are interested in volunteering in the classroom, you must attend a volunteer training session with the main Forest Glen office.  If you have had previous training, you will just need to sign a current confidentiality agreement and do’s and don’ts acknowledgment.  Please contact the main office office with questions.

If you are planning to be in the classroom for a party or assembly this year please stop in the office to sign a confidentiality agreement AND ALSO to scan your driver's license or ID in Forest Glen's new security system.  This process can take a few moments the first time your ID is scanned and is faster and easier subsequent visits.
