Dear Moffett Families,


            Moffett PTA is so proud of the programs they coordinate and support for our students.  None of these programs would be possible without the help of our volunteers


        As I start to think about closing out this year and planning for next year I have been thinking about all the talented people we have at Moffett who have been supporting the school and supporting PTA.  


        One of my biggest responsibilities as PTA President is making sure that we have volunteers in all the right places to  ensure that we remain a vibrant and productive organization.


     If you have a desire to help or a talent to share, please contact me so we can talk about how you can help.   Below you will find descriptions of some of the roles that are available for next year. 


I look forward to speaking with you about these, and other opportunities available
