Opportunities for Involvement


Many parents and community members offer their time and talents by investing in the education of the children of the community. The most important quality a volunteer can possess is dependability. Our volunteers are incredibly valuable to our students and teachers. If you are unable to come on any day you are expected, please call the office and leave a message. To serve as a volunteer it is not necessary to have a student at Natomas Park Elementary School. Grandparents, senior citizens, members of the community and college students are very welcome. Please contact the PTA or our school office for information on how you can volunteer your time to make a difference for our school. All volunteers must pass fingerprinting and TB test clearance through NUSD. Please see our office for a Volunteer Packet or visit the Natomas Unified School District Volunteer page.

Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

The PTA is a collaborative group of Natomas Park Elementary parents and teachers who care about our children and about the environment of Natomas Park Elementary. The PTA meets regularly once a month, typically on
the first Thursday of the month. Any member of the school community or teacher may participate in the meetings and attend the activities. If you are interested in additional information please visit the PTA website.

School Site Council (SSC)

The school site council is a group of teachers, parents, classified employees, and students (at the high school level) that works with the principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and school budgets. The members of the site council are generally elected by their peers. The SSC meets regularly once a month on the first Thursday of every month. If you are interested in additional information, call the school office (916) 928-5234.

English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

The role of the ELAC is to advise the principal and School Site Council on programs and services for English learners. The ELAC acts in an advisory capacity. It is not a decision making body, but it is the voice of the English
learner community. Specifically, the ELAC:

  • Advises on the development of services for English learners in the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA).
  • Assists in the development of the school’s needs assessment and efforts to make parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance.
  • Has representation on Council of Councils

The ELAC meets regularly once a month on the last Monday of every month. If you are interested in additional information, call the school office (916) 928-5234.
