Back to school shopping for next year right now … Are you kidding me? Let me remind you of the chaos that comes with last minute back to school shopping in the summer. Why not shop on-line with 1st Day School Supplies versus in-line at Wal-Mart, Target or Staples. In just a few clicks, you will get the exact supplies your teacher requested without the hassle and aggravation that comes with shopping last minute at big box retailers.

The 2017-18 Auction is complete and we'd love to know what you thought! Please take a moment to fill out this short form and give us some feedback so we can make improvements for next year. =)

Every year Parmalee holds a Spring Auction and Carnival. This is by far the biggest and most fun event of the year! There is a fun-filled time for the kids playing games, dancing, winning prizes, and playing with their friends. Meanwhile the adults get to enjoy participating in the silent auction, wine pull, gift card pull, live auction and more - all while raising funds to help keep Parmalee the amazing experience it is for our kids!!

Please come enjoy the festivities and support the school by bidding on all the wonderful items so generously donated to the school! This year our auction will be help using HandBid which will allow you to see the items, bid on them, and pay from the convenience of your phone =)

We need EVERY parent to participate and volunteer for this event.

The class with the highest % of volunteers will earn $100 for their teacher to spend in their classroom!

  • When you volunteer for a position, add your child’s teacher’s name in the description to give their teacher credit. If you have multiple children, you may list all teachers in a single slot. 
  • Sign up for more than one slot to get multiple credits! 
  • If you’ve already registered to volunteer – THANK YOU!  Your child’s class will get double credit!


We REALLY need check-in, check-out, and auction floor monitors!




The kids say it best!




PTA builds bridges between homes and schools, integrating the efforts of parents with those of principals and teachers. When you get involved in PTA, the child who benefits the most is your own. You also are taking a major step toward improving your child’s school, your community, and your state and national education and health policies. PTA promotes the education, health, and safety of children and families. 


Parmalee is a small school and we'd love all the help we can get to ensure our kids get the most out of their school experience! We are like a normal PTA... except WAY cooler! ;-)

Other Committee Descriptions:

King Soopers Card Chair

The King Soopers card give 5 percent of what you spend to the PTA. As the chair all you have to do is send out a flyer (probably should be updated) in the fall. When the forms come back they should have $20 with them. You then add up all the cards and call into King Soopers and request the right number of cards for the school with $20 on each of them. It is usually takes a couple of days and you can pick them up wherever. You need to turn all the money into the PTA, they write you a check for King Soopers . Then you pick up the cards, bring them to school and deliver them. When we have earned enough money we will get a check from kings and you just turn that into the PTA. 

  VOLUNTEERS: We need every parent to volunteer at least 3 hours a year. I know, we are all so busy! It can be really hard to volunteer on top of a full time job and all the after school programs for the kids. The good news is that we have PLENTY of volunteer opportunities at all times and days! If you haven't signed a physical volunteer interest sheet at Back to School night or Boo-Hoo Breakfast please fill out the form below.  Dads- please consider volunteering for Watch Dogs (the kids will love seeing you there!) and/or 'Man'-ual labor.
