Get Involved

As an all-volunteer organization, the PCPA depends heavily on participation from Pond Cove families. Here are the ways you can get involved.

Attend a Monthly Meeting

Our meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month, with the exception of vacation weeks and/or when otherwise noted. Meetings follow Robert’s Rules of Order and are typically 60 minutes in length. The meetings are meant to be informative and to encourage the exchange of new ideas.

For the 2020-21 school year, all meetings will be held via Google Hangout until further notice. You can join on your computer or mobile device, or by phone. Information is shared via our Google calendar – see the bottom of this page for instructions.

Volunteer

We couldn’t run any of our programs without our amazing volunteers. Please check out our volunteering page for more info.
