Becoming a Solar Prep PTA volunteer is simple.
Our events and activities are led by eight steering committees. The committees are: Education and Enrichment, Membership, Programs , Fund Development, Community Relations, Dual Language (Diversity & Inclusion), Hospitality and Marketing & Communications.
PTA advocates for Solar boys, plans and sponsors events throughout the year; and coordinates school communication through the PTA Facebook page. The Solar Prep for Boys’ bylaws act as our general guidelines for how our PTA should operate and our standing rules are more specific and cover procedures for how to handle events, funds raised and community activities, etc.
Some of our exciting programs include:
- INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE Each class picks a different country to research, makes a display with their gathered information, and provides food that represents their country.
- COMMUNITY COFFEES PTA regularly sponsors breakfast, coffee, and conversations with the Principal and Solar staff.
- SOLAR SPIRIT WEAR We sell things like spirit shirts, sweatshirts, yard signs and more several times throughout the year.
- BOX TOPS We collect Box Tops throughout the year to send in for money.
- AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMS We help the school coordinate various extracurricular programs through the YMCA including basketball, soccer, baseball and Skills Camps.
- HOSPITALITY We put on events such as Boohoo/Yahoo Breakfast, Popsicles in the Park, New Families Mixer, and so much more!
- REFLECTIONS ART PROGRAM Students are invited to participate in a national art contest and can choose from several different media.
