Volunteers NEEDED!:  Frost runs on volunteers and we are in serious need of people to help out this year!  Most of these positions are very easy jobs and can even be done with a friend!  If you are interested in any of the following committee positions please contact Mik at

  • Restaurant Nights:  Setting up fundraising dinner nights at local establishments like Potbelly, Chipotle, Flipping Pizza, Chick-Fil-A. 

  • Spirit Wear Co-Chair:  Helping order, sell, and develop on-line sales of Frost “branded” items. 

  • Book Fair:  Arranging parent volunteer help on Sign-up Genius to sell books at the Library during the book fair.
  •  Clinic Health Parent Aide: Coordinate volunteers for the 7th grade health screenings in October, and to serve as a sub when the nurse is out. When not filled, it just requires someone else to create a sign-up genius and publicize it. 

  • Frost Family Festival (3F):  This is a joint event ran by the school and PTA that invites rising sixth graders and their families to visit Frost and preview courses and electives in the Spring.  The 3F coordinator helps publicize the event and manage food sales and baked goods donation. 

  • Reflections Program:  This is a Virginia and National PTA program that invites students to create submissions in the following categories: dance, film, literature, music, composition, photography, and visual arts.   The coordinator promotes the program, manages the process, solicits judges, notify winners, and send winners to the Regional Level. 

  • Eight Grade End of Year Celebration:  This is the end of year gala event held on a Friday night in June.   We have two DJs, food, and carnival games.
