Why in the world did you volunteer for the PTA?!?
Well, why not?? PTA directly supports our children’s educational experience, from book fair, to eagle reader; skate night to art lessons; and carnival to teacher and staff appreciation. PTA brings awesome events and activities to the school through parent and community volunteers and is funded by membership, fundraising, and donations.
One of the biggest misconceptions is that if you sign up for membership that you'll have to volunteer for every single event. We understand everyone's lives are busy and many parents work full time, however, there are so many events throughout the school year - both short and long term - that can be easily worked into your schedule. Remember, you don’t have to do it all! Take a look at the volunteer calendar, pick one (or two!) things and we promise...your time will be very appreciated!
Current Volunteer Opportunities
Throughout the year, we have several volunteer opportunities. Some are one-time events, some are short-term, while others are on-going for the year. Volunteer opportunities may be before school, during school hours, or after school, while some volunteer needs can be fulfilled at home. Below are a list of links to current sign-ups. If you'd like more information about specific programs (with no obligation to sign up), please fill out our prospective volunteer form.
**All Volunteers must pass a background check through the Kent School District VIPS program, prior to participating in school events.
Prospective Volunteer Registration
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the PTA at Sawyer Woods! Please enter your information and select all volunteer opportunities that you are interested in. A follow-up email will be sent out by the program coordinator(s) with more information.
All new and returning volunteers will need to fill out the volunteer questionnaire, upload their driver's license or other acceptable form of identification, and proof of insurance (only if signing up to be a driver). A background check will be required for all volunteers, prior to helping in the school.
Returning volunteers should sign in to their existing account, and update their profile - there is no need to submit new identification or insurance, unless there has been a change.
