 How Can You Help?

The PTF always welcomes volunteers of all time commitment levels.

  • The first step is to complete the Parent Participation Form at the beginning of the school year.
  • Second, please join the rewards programs listed above and be sure any customer VIP cards are "linked" to TKA. You would be amazed how much money is made through these programs.
  • Lastly, be a leader. We are always in need of volunteers to help manage and direct our projects. Let us help you get "plugged in" at TKA.
