Capri PTA Programs 2020-2021
We are so fortunate to have a large, varied school population with many backgrounds, skills, talents and personalities.
"Volunteers are not paid ... not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless."
If you would like to donate your time or have an idea that could benefit our school/programs, please let us know or find a committee to join!
Volunteer opportunities can be ongoing, monthly, or even onetime events. Offering your support through time, talent, and other means is a great way to help the school and your child and a chance to meet other parents!
Here are some ways to learn about volunteer
opportunities with the Capri Elementary PTA
