Learning apart, together

Gators PTA recognizes that teachers and families are faced with unprecedented challenges during this era of distance learning.  We have condensed a manageable list of essential information and resource options in response to the overwhelming abundance we are all faced with daily.  On this page you will find family resources ranging from child care options, virtual volunteering, health information, family learning tools, and PTA resources.  

Let's get through this together. 

Virtual Volunteering

Do you have a passion you'd like to share with our students?  

Consider volunteering as an online social group leader.

Our PTA is seeking adults to facilitate meaningful social time for our students (imagine a virtual club or chatroom for topics like Minecraft, geology, baking, or other student interests).  Please contact Cassie Braegger, our VP of Programs to sign-up: programs@gatorspta.org. 

Maybe you're a tech-savvy person who'd like to help parents?

Consider volunteering as a classroom IT support leader. 

 Our PTA is seeking adults to guide parents with personable technology support during this new era of distance learning. We need help with Canvas, Teams, Clever, and more. Please contact Cassie Braegger, our VP of Programs to sign-up: programs@gatorspta.org. 

Are you interested in teaching virtual art lessons?

Consider volunteering as a virtual art docent. 

Our PTA is seeking adults to teach art lessons to individual classroomsPlease contact Angie Pelligrini and Crystal Worton, our art docent chairs, to sign-up: artdocents@gatorspta.org. 

We're all learning from home, but

we still NEED volunteers like you!
