    Coe PTA needs you!

    PTA Open Positions for 2017-18

    With next year in mind, it's time to fill our PTA positions. We have some great jobs opening up, and we'd love to have some new faces on the board! Being involved in the PTA is a great way to advocate for our children and our school, and help Virginia and our teachers provide the best possible learning environment for our students.

    If a job seems interesting to you, but you're worried about the time commitment, please contact us. Many people easily do these jobs without being at school during the day and while working a full-time job. As always, working with a friend is always more fun so grab a friend and partner up to take on one of the positions! Below is a list of open positions. If you are interested or have questions, please contact Katie Heckel or Shannon Bentley at
