Welcome Back-to-School Lumberton Families,
The Lumberton PTA is very excited to start another great year supporting our schools and community and offering events and fun activities. The success of each of these events is dependent upon membership volunteers. Only with your support, can we continue to offer enjoyable programs and activities for our children. Please Don’t Delay….Join the PTA.
We are looking forward to meeting and working with all of you throughout the 2017-2018 school year. Please keep in mind we can’t do this without the support of you. If everyone would volunteer just one (1) hour of their time at an event(s), we would be truly appreciative and there would be ample volunteers to have all our events.
As events approach throughout the year we will reach out to the membership for committee volunteers. Please use the links provided to volunteer for these events. The committee chairperson will contact volunteers directly with more specific details regarding the event and request help when needed.
We are in immediate need of volunteers for the following – Don’t Delay…Sign Up Today!
