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. 

 

Field Day Planning

BCE students love Field Day!  Help us make this springtime event the best ever!  We need your help with new ideas and new stations.  The planners from the last few years have graduated to middle school, so fresh ideas are needed and welcomed.  If you are interested in helping with a team of parents to create this awesome annual event or have an idea to share please contact: Jamey Boschee boscheej@gmail.com


 

Please remember that if you are volunteering for a PTA sponsored activity, you must be a PTA member and have a completed volunteer paper must be on file with the school. Forms can be found here: https://bearcreek.nsd.org/resources/volunteer

February 11, 2019; Olympia, WA

 

Be A Part of Bear Creek PTA's Advocacy!

Focus Week is coming up February 11-15 and we are gathering postcards to hand deliver to legislators in Olympia. This is a great opportunity to tell legislators what is most important to you and what you want them to be focusing on and why.

PTA members from across the state will also be headed to Olympia on Monday, February 11th, for Focus Day to make their voices heard. Northshore Council PTSA is even providing a FREE bus to attend! 

 

Be on the look out for both postcards and more information coming home in Friday Folders and posted here.
