Academie Da Vinci is proud to have a very active and involved PTA. Throughout the school year, we host PTA Parties, sponsor events & programs, hold school fundraisers and most importantly advocate for the growth, development, and enrichment of our students and our school. Show your child that their education is important to you by getting involved in ADV PTA! For a listing of our upcoming events, community outreach and save the dates please check this page often.  


Did you know that you are required to volunteer at least 20 hours throughout the school year? What better way to get involved than through ADV PTA? We are constantly searching for volunteers to join committees and assist with the planning and execution of our school events, fundraisers and more. For a list of current volunteer needs and descriptions please see below. 



Volunteer Opportunities


Car Line Volunteers

We need parents to help get kids safely into and out of cars each morning and afternoon.

Grant Writing

There is so much money out there for schools - especially schools with special programs for the arts and technology! We have to get in the flow of it! We need grant researchers and grant writers. This is an excellent way to get those volunteer hours in from home. 

Teacher Appreciation Committee

At the end of each year when the testing has completed and the school year is winding down to an end we have Teacher Appreciation Week. This is a time when we honor our teachers and everything that they do for us and our children. We need a committee that will help plan and execute the events for each day of this week. 

Spring Festival Committee

Spring Festival is an event held at ADV for the students and parents to attend. This is a fun filled event with bounce houses, a dunk tank, food, crafts and games. We also combine our Culture Night Event with this festival where we celebrate our differences and learn all about foods, traditions and interesting facts from other countries and cultures. We need a committee to help plan and execute this annual ADV event. More details and committee chair contact will be posted shortly.  

Annual Run For The Arts

This is a family-friendly event that allows participants to run, jog, or walk a 5k along the trail at Highlander Park and Hammock Park in Dunedin. There is also a 1-mile fun run for walkers, joggers, and runners. Seeking volunteers to help with planning this event, course set up, managing course during the event, and clean up.

Silent Auction / Raffle

Each year during our student winter production the PTSA holds the year's largest fundraiser; the Silent Auction/Raffle. Each classroom donates a basket for the silent auction. There are rewards given to classes who place first in the following categories: 

  • Most Creative Theme

  • Most Money Raised

  • Best Presentation

Teachers also provide gift certs for fun things for the silent auction such as a lunch date, ice cream party, etc. ​Lastly, local businesses, sports teams, theme parks, etc are contacted for donations for the silent auction and raffle. The more items we obtain, the more money we can raise. We need a committee! Many hands make light work and this fundraiser is a lot of work. Responsibilities of this committee include: 

  • Acquiring donations from local businesses, sports teams, theme parks, etc. , working from a previous donor list

  • Work with Room Moms on basket donations.  

  • Work with teacher Liaison to get teacher activity gift certificates

  • Assemble extra donation baskets

  • Bid sheets - this consists of assigning starting values to each item. 

  • Selling raffle tickets at event

  • Promoting the event

  • Work the event table to answer questions, sell raffle tickets and monitor goods. 

  • Set-Up/Clean-Up

A large committee is needed for this. Seeking people with skills of all kinds. Volunteer today!
