Educational Enhancement Needs Your Help!
The PTA needs volunteers to fill two positions.
We are looking for a Programs Volunteer to coordinate our after school PTA-sponsored programs.    The Co-VPs of Educational Enhancement have the Fiesta Latina, Tambores, Flamenco, Bomba del Sol and Salsa/Hip Hop after school programs up and running, but need support on the administrative side to ensure we continue to provide safe and enriching after school programs for our students. 
Would you like to see Spanish summer camps offered for Puesta del Sol students again?  We are also looking for a Summer Camp Volunteer to work with BSD, Señor Shearer and our fabulous teachers to coordinate possible Spanish summer camp opportunities for our students. 
Contact edenhancement@puestadelsolpta.org for more information!
