Come One…Come All! Our biggest motto is…make it fun!
Join our PTO Volunteer Program.

Volunteering does not have to feel like an extra job or burden. We promise to value your time and make ourselves available for any questions or concerns you may have because your participation is that important to the school and the kids.

It is so simple to volunteer… it is as easy as 1, 2, 3:

STEP 1: If you haven’t already done so, register to become an approved volunteer with the St. Johns County School District at

STEP 2: Reach out to the PTO by emailing or through the school

STEP 3: Make it fun!

We have Volunteer Opportunities on-going throughout the year.
