Welcome to the ZT PVG website!

Who We Are 
The Zane Trace Parent Volunteer Group is made up of parents and family members of elementary school students.
Our goal is to support the teachers and staff of Zane Trace Elementary School to help provide an excellent education and a healthy, enriched school environment for our children.
We do this through volunteer efforts, fund-raising projects, and organizing fun activities for the students and their families.

What We Do
The PVG sponsors at least one annual sales fund raiser like a cookie dough sale. As well as several smaller fund raisers like T-shirt sales, the annual Santa Breakfast and an auction at Family Fun Night.

Money from these fundraisers are used for multiple projects through out the school year. The PVG pays for transportation for one field trip for each grade. Teachers are given money for special events and classroom supplies. We help to pay for the teacher's copier. We periodically purchase equipment like printer/scanners for the classrooms, books for the student reading baggies, and the reading rug for the library. We supply first aid supplies for the office and much more.

We also sponsor several annual events for our students, families and staff. Fun family events like Santa Breakfast and Family Fun night are well attended. We organize or help to staff Back to School Night, Santa Shop, and Kindergarten Graduation. We plan events for the teachers and staff during Teacher's Appreciation week.

We also provide hundreds of hours of volunteer time at the school each year for various needs.  These are only a few of our projects. There are opportunities for all parents and family members to be involved. Many projects take only a little time, and many occur outside of 9-5 work hours. Some work can be done at home on your own time. If you can give one hour or one hundred, we'd love to have you involved! Come to a meeting or contact a PVG member for more information!
