The more families are involved, the more kids succeed.


You don’t need teaching or professional experience to volunteer. The most important qualification is a genuine interest in helping our students and teachers maximize their potential.

In order to volunteer, you must complete a background check and the clearance process.

Truman PTA

Our PTA has provided opportunities for Truman since 1970!

We strive to make our school a better place for the students, staff and parents. We’ve helped raise money for office equipment, supplemental supplies, art supplies, etc. Not only do we help raise money, we also volunteer to help our teachers and school.
