PTA Volunteer Opportunities & Ways to Support your PTA Programs and Events

You can support the Central PTA in many ways:
Become a PTA member and Donate: As a member of the Central PTA, you are a voice for our kids and part of the largest child advocacy program in the world. Check the school calendar for upcoming meetings and events. Check out the Membership and Fundraising page on how to contribute to making a difference.
Volunteer Opportunities: There are a number of positions we are hoping to fill immediately as well as many more opportunities throughout the year. Check out for details and to sign up.
Stampede and Soar: This fun run has been a popular tradition at Central for many years. Arroyo joined in and it evolved into a color run.  Join a committee and participate in bringing back this exciting community event. *More information coming soon! 
Lunchtime Support: Support school staff by being present in the yard and playground during student lunch.  Assist students and supervise as needed.  Report to staff any concerning behavior you might observe. *More information coming soon! 
Reward Programs: By participating in these reward programs, a percentage of your purchases will automatically be donated to the Central Arroyo PTA — at no cost to you! This year’s rewards goal is to raise $7,500 to continue our wonderful student programs and teacher support. Help support these opportunities for your children at Arroyo and Central! It’s easy, fast, and secure to participate!
