Pine Tree ISD Launches Raptor Volunteer Managment Program


Pine Tree ISD has launched a new volunteer management program. The Raptor Volunteer Management Program will track, report and provide a more efficient system for the district's volunteer program.

Under the director of Community Relations Coordinator Donna Pruitt, all PTISD current and new volunteers will utilize the system in the fall of 2017.

The Pine Tree Independent School District encourages parents, guardians, and patrons of our district to become an active part of the schools in our community.

A volunteer's tasks are limitless, including opportunities such as tutoring, chaperoning school dances and field trips, becoming a literacy partner or helping in a campus office. The list is endless and each volunteer contributes to making PTISD a great place to learn. 

To learn more about volunteer opportunities at PTISD, contact Donna Pruitt at 903-295-5136 or dpruitt@ptisd.org.
