Volunteer Opportunities

Blast Off Benefit 

Volunteer needs: The Blast Off Benefit is returning this spring!  We are looking for some 4th and 5th grade parents to help lead this event.  If you are interested in helping lead a portion of this event please email

All volunteers, no matter what grade your kiddos are in, are invited to support this event.  If you would like to join this committee please update your profile on Better Impact to include Blast Off Benefit.

Emergency Preparedness

Volunteer needs: We are putting together a committee to help procure additional supplies to enhance our school’s emergency supplies as well as plan an emergency preparation workshop for our Rock Creek community. If you are interested in participating, please update your preferences on Better Impact to include Emergency Prep.

Recess Runners –Every Tuesday and Thursday 

Click here to volunteer for Recess Runners and schedule yourself on Better Impact.

Volunteer Needs: Volunteers help hand out popsicle sticks each lap and record the total number of laps each child has completed.  This is a great way to see your child during the day and you are welcome to bring younger siblings.  Each grade level shift is about 25 minutes and you can sign up for as many shifts as you’d like.  This is a new volunteer opportunity in Better Impact and this program is 100% volunteer dependent.

Art Lit
Click here to volunteer for Art Lit.  Update your interests to include Art Lit and schedule yourself for a training on Better Impact. The Art Lit coordinators will work with you to schedule the in-class lesson. For questions contact

Volunteer needs:  After attending a training to learn the step-by-step art project, volunteers guide a classroom through the hands-on art project.  There are six trainings / projects this year and we need a volunteer for each classroom. Kids love art lit and are always excited to see us! We still have some classrooms without a volunteer.

This comprehensive system includes a streamlined application and integrated Background Check with a bi-annual renewal. ALL volunteers, including new and returning, will need to complete a profile on the new system to volunteer with the Beaverton School District.
