Open Positions

Parent involvement is the key to any great school. It’s also a lot of fun as well as a wonderful way to make friends. Many volunteer positions require very little of your time and effort but offer a big payoff to our children and their school. Please contact the listed event chairs or the Underwood PTO at for further details on any of these open positions.

Thank you for your continued involvement in making Underwood a vibrant community!

Creative Arts & Sciences Committee (CASC)

Volunteers needed!
Run by Jillian Feinberg and Hai Ly Burk, grade-level coordinators are needed to organize volunteers for enrichment programming for each class. Coordinators work with Jillian and Hai (who schedule all programming) to ensure at least one parent volunteer attends each session. This is a great opportunity to get into your child’s classroom and get to know his/her teacher and classmates. Minimal effort required; time invested is only 45-90 minutes per session. Learn more about CASC.
