The success of our PTA depends on parent participation.  When you volunteer at Tejeda, whether it's at one event or on a regular basis, you join us as a partner in your child's education. We appreciate any time or talents that you can give to our Timberwolf community.  We have several committees that you can volunteer to be a part of!
