2021/2022 Events and Programs

The Country Oaks PTA has a long-standing tradition of sponsoring many amazing events and programs for our students and school community. Each year is unique and brings different volunteering needs. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic volunteering in the school is limited. However, the PTA is working diligently to develop creative ways to support our community virtually and in person!

It is the hope of the PTA that events will happen in some form this year.  In order to do so we need many team leaders and team members to ensure success! Please take a look at the events that we are looking at sponsoring for the school year and consider filling a volunteer role. It is the BEST way to get involved at COE, support the staff and students and make new friends. We encourage multi member teams that take on individual roles and collaborate together to accomplish the event.  Never joined a team or lead an event? No problem. The PTA Board will meet with your team, get you started and set up for success. You will never be alone!


If you have any questions please contact Courtney Rudolf the VP of Events and Volunteers for the Country Oaks PTA or fill out a volunteer form and you will be contacted when needs are determined.
