PTA Grandparents—and Special Friends

Grandparents + Kids = Magic


Grandparents have a special kind of magic with their grandchildren. Bring some of that magic to our school by becoming a PTA Grandparent or Special Friend (we know that lots of people who aren’t technically grandparents play a very important role in kids’ lives).

There is no cost for becoming a PTA Grandparent / Special Friend, and there are no meetings to attend! You can be involved with the school as much—or as little—as you like.

We’ll keep you up-to-date with our newsletter and emails.

Just fill out the form at the bottom of this page.

We hope to welcome you to our PTA!

What can Ritchie park PTA Grandparents do?



All efforts are welcome and there are lots of ways to volunteer. But there is no obligation.

If you would like to give some of your time, you can view a list of current volunteer opportunities here.


help fundraise

You can help the PTA raise in several ways. For example:

  • Collect Box Tops from your friends and neighbors

  • Sign up for grocery store loyalty programs that donate to Ritchie Park (at no cost to you)
