We also need parents to answer questions after daytime tours. Sign up to help with parent Q&A

Ask the PTA board if you’re interested in helping with a PTA coffee chat.

Lunch and recess

We are in urgent need of volunteers to help make lunch and recess a safe and fun environment for our kids. The shift is daily from 10:30 am to 12 pm and especially on Thursdays, but we need help on all days.  Please consider coming in to help make our school run smoothly! Please use the sign up genius to indicate all days that you plan to help out in order for the office to better plan staff schedules.

When we have less than 2 recess volunteers we are unable to open the field. When the field is open it allows our kids to explore and experiment more, and it allows them to play games like soccer and kickball. The vast majority of lunch recesses over January and February have only been able to happen on the pavement and playground and so our students who like these sorts of sports are especially impacted.

If your schedule allows, please consider signing up for a volunteer shift during lunch recess.

Right now our focus is on Thursday, and we need support on all days.

Thank you for all your support and for raising such wonderful children!

After School Enrichment Programs for Winter Session

We are seeking on-site enrichment program volunteers helping to ensure all participating students are checked in and out of their programs for winter session!

Student Mentoring and Tutoring

We are looking for adults interested in offering in-person mentoring and tutoring support in math, reading, and writing at Cascadia. Volunteers will need to be available during the school day, approved as an SPS volunteer, and patient with kids.

This volunteer opportunity is to support students needing extra help, as well as for students looking for more challenge, with the hope of working with all students. The plan is to pilot with Grade 3 and 5 classes for winter, with a goal to expand to all grades in the spring.

Planning is still underway and volunteers will receive more information as it becomes available. Some training will be provided and specific schedule sign-ups will be available in the coming weeks.

Interested? Email Cascadia PTA President, Eric Feeny, at president@cascadiapta.org with your name, email address, and the preferred grade level.

After school 5 minute clean

At school pick up every day, we need a volunteer to quickly do a clean up of the playground and confirm the gates to Eagle Staff are closed. There are garbage pickers for use.  This would be 5 minutes work at pick up.
Please let us know if you can do this at vicepresident@cascadiapta.org
