Level 2: Volunteer for Events or Join a Committee

We are also looking for volunteers to read with students 1 hour each week through our Everyone A Reader program starting later in the school year. For more information email

Level 3: Join the CDM PTA Executive Board:

Become a member of the CDM PTA Executive Board and you will not only have the opportunity to get in the room where decisions are made, but you’ll also be able to create relationships with other CDM parents, teachers, and staff.  We are a welcoming and low-key group that values diversity and a range of opinions. Our board meets once a month and each member is assigned a different position to support all that the PTA does for CDM.

Please contact Susanne Volk at if you are interested in joining our board.
