New Kid in small town

Has anyone had this issue?  I am new to a small town and have a 5 and 11 year old.  I have tried several times to get involved with this school but am treated like a outsider.  I have even made an attempted to go and have lunch one day with my 5 year old and was not able to because the teacher was not told 24 to 48 hours in advance.  This to me was a little strange.  I have been through the volunteer training, spoke with the Principle, Vice Principle and his Teacher and ask if I could help with anything but still no go.  I have noticed other parents helping when I go and pick my child up but I can't seem to get my foot in the door. Does anyone have any advise?  Stay at Home Mom just trying to help.

Oh forgot to mention that I did join the PTA and personally spoke with the President and told her I would love to help with anything.  I was the PTA president at my son's previous school so that is why I am having a hard time understanding why no one wants my help. We were always looking for good help.  Anyway your idea about coming up with some fundraising ideas  maybe a good answer.  I subscribe to family fun magazine myself and think it is a great magazine. Thanks for the advise.
