We Need Your Help!

There are tons of volunteer opportunities throughout the year covering a range of needs. We welcome all talents, passions, and experience – whether you have 30 minutes, 3 hours, or more time to commit, we’d love to have you involved. The more volunteers available to help, the less overall time each individual needs to commit to pull of all of our PTGO initiatives in grand form! 

The PTGO has several committees to help facilitate various events and fundraising projects. Check out the all of our committees below. If you’re interested, click the sign-me-up link to fill out a short contact form that lets us know you’re interested and available to help. If you’d like to volunteer for multiple committees, that’s awesome – you can submit one form with multiple committees selected and we’ll be in touch with specific ways you can help! 

The PTGO cannot exist without parent volunteers – we truly appreciate any and all help! 


This is a BIG one that takes lots of helping hands!!! All River Park PTGO Events and Projects are funded 100% by money we raise. There are many BIG fundraising events throughout the year including Read-a-thon, the Spring Carnival, and Spirit Nights. The Fundraising Committee welcomes ALL talents, availability, and ideas! From counting read-a-thon minutes, to contacting local businesses for spirit nights, to planning and organizing carnival stations - there is something for everyone!


The River Park PTGO is lead and run by volunteers. Encouraging membership and parent/guardian involvement is crucial to the success of all PTGO events and projects. The PTGO hosts several events throughout the year to encourage membership including the Kindergarten Popsicle Playdate. There is a lot of room for growth here so if you have ideas to recruit more members or like organizing social events, this is the committee for you!

Hospitality & Teacher Appreciation

River Park has the BEST teachers and staff and we want to make sure they always feel supported and appreciated! The PTGO currently hosts monthly Stock-the-Fridge events and Teacher Appreciation Breakfasts but we know there are more ways we can show our support! If you have a passion for hospitality or really just love our teachers and staff (who doesn't?!!), this is the committee for you!

Grounds & Beautification

There are several upcoming grounds & beautification projects including restoration of the nature trail and continued maintenance and improvements for Ms. McCurdy's dry creek bed project! Playground updates also fall under this committee! We want River Park to look it's best and for students and staff to be proud of their school. If you like working outside or have any experience in landscaping, construction, horticulture, or gardening, this is the committee for you!

Community Events

Reaching out to the community and generating community support is important to the River Park PTGO. This is an area that could use some growth and new ideas. In the past, we've hosted a beginning-of-the-year ice cream social but we would like to incorporate more community events throughout the year. If you have ideas to help in this area or strong community connections, this is the committee for you!

Grant Research & Writing

There are dozens (possibly hundreds) of grants available for schools like River Park. Often times, grant research and writing falls to teachers who have a specific project or interest in mind (like Ms. McCurdy's creek bed project) but we can help! From security upgrades to school supplies, field trips and more - there are resources available and we can help find them and acquire them! If you have experience in grant research or writing or are interested in learning more, this is the job for you!
