  • Volunteers

    Family engagement is vital to VPE PTA and, because of that, we facilitate volunteering by family members and other friends of education every day that school is in session. Many events and programs also require planning and preparation outside of school hours so you can be involved no matter what your schedule! Please take time to look over this form and learn about some of the programs and committees that are planned for this year at VPE. Fill out the Volunteer Interest Form on the last page – (no commitment; just a way to find out how you can be involved) – and return it to Malinda Breeding at to get more info on how you can help VPE continue to shine!
