VOLUNTEER

 

2020-2021 will be a unique year as face to face events and large gatherings are currently not permitted. That being said, the PTA execs are coming up with creative ways to continue providing our families different ways to be involved. It will look different for sure, but we hope to still conduct events that the students look forward to every year, virtually, if possible.

 

More information will be provided as we formulate a strategy. In the meantime, please consider supporting the fabulous Kincaid community by becoming a PTA member.
