Volunteering with the PTA allows our community to continue to do the important work of supporting our teachers, our students, and all of Happy Valley Elementary! We need folks like you to help! There are always many ways to support from being hands-on at events to acting behind the scenes. The role that the PTA plays is vital to the school and the role you can play is vital to the PTA! 

We could use a few more volunteers to help us this year! Please reach out if you're interested in discussing these roles, or other opportunities to serve!

  • We need Room Reps for each classroom to assist the teachers, reach out to families, coordinate classroom volunteers and appreciation gifts. 

  • Our cafeteria needs daily helpers!

  • 5th Grade Year-End Event Coordinator

  • Volunteer Coordinator

  • FUN RUN: DISCO DASH Volunteers!

Are Covid-19 Vaccines Still Required? Read the BPS District Policy:
  • Covid-19 vaccines are still required for all volunteers. However, BPS parents/guardians of BPS may apply for a medical or religious exemption. They must first complete the volunteer application up to uploading their vaccine card and contact the district Volunteer Coordinator, Jennifer Gaer, for directions to apply for the exemption.  This option is only available to parents and guardians within the district. 

  • There is an "outdoor volunteer" option for those unvaccinated parent/guardians who do not wish to apply for an exemption. They may serve outside at recess or on walking field trips.

For questions about these district-wide policies, please reach out to Jennifer.Gaer@BellinghamSchools.org.
