Volunteer Dashboard

Bear Creek PTA is a volunteer run organization.  We have lots of amazing volunteers, and as always have lots of volunteer openings this year. 

All of the amazing programs we run rely on volunteer help.  Helping, even for a couple of hours a year with an event setup or cleanup is an amazing help - and you get to have fun & meet great people. 


After School Programs need YOU!
The PTA Enrichment Committee is currently accepting proposals for after school classes for
Spring Session (Apr/May/Jun).  If you're interested in chairing a class, please contact Roisin
Bennett at before March 23rd.  More information on what is
involved can be found at:


 Upcoming PTA volunteer openings

This is the time of year when PTA starts planning for next year. 
We're looking a volunteer to take on the PTA website management role. This is an ideal role for someone who wants to do their volunteering from home! Familiarity with building websites is helpful, but not absolutely necessary.
We also need volunteers to help form the after school enrichment program committee.  Without people to fill these positions, there may not be after school programs next year.  So if your student has benefited from Chess, Spanish, French, Spelling Bee, Forest Time, Violin or any of the myriad of programs we've run in recent years, please consider getting involved.
To find out more about what would be involved, please contact Rois Bennett at
