Staff Room Donations and Volunteers Needed

Woodlawn PTA

The Woodlawn PTA needs help supporting our staff in the PTA run staff room. Staff Appreciation Committee Could Use Your Help

Below you will find a list of ongoing duties and one-time event coordination opportunities.


Tidy Team – Cleaning the Staff Resilience Room is a key job but it doesn’t need to take long if we have enough help. Ideally we need the room cleaned 3 times a week. Here is a link to sign up for as many or as little shifts as you want. Feel free to tidy the room when your schedule allows, but we’ve noticed tidying at the end of the school day is nice so that the room is clean the next morning. Tidying the room shouldn’t take more than 15-20 minutes. We also have monthly slots for cleaning out and cleaning the fridge. TidyTeam sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d49afa828a4fec43-resilience

Coffee Donations:  

The staff room can use ground coffee donations (not flavored). You can drop them at the front desk.
