Support the Oakton PTA
There are many ways to support the Oakton PTA and the students of Oakton Elementary, but the easiest and most fulfilling is pitching in with programs and activities through the PTA.
Volunteer with us
Helping with a PTA program or event is one of the most valuable ways you can support the Oakton PTA. And in return, you will have a chance to connect with other families who have children at Oakton. You may get a glimpse of your child's experience inside the school or a chance to get to know our wonderful principal and faculty better. We have opportunities to volunteer for all commitment levels. Some duties can be performed from home and some require your presence at the school. There are one-time volunteer efforts, seasonal ones, event-based opportunities and ongoing efforts. Some volunteer opportunities work well if you decide to do them with a partner or friend. If you are interested in more information about volunteering, email email@example.com.
However, financial support is also greatly appreciated and supports a better and more equitable school experience for all District 65 schools through the PTA Equity Project (PEP). Easy ways to financially support the Oakton PTA include:
