Volunteer with the PTA!

There are a lot of great ways to volunteer with the Briarwood Elementary PTA! 


We are looking to fill open chair positions so we can bring more programs to students, teachers, and families.  Time commitment is flexible. If you have a friend who is interested in volunteering, team up to chair one of the open positions.  The PTA Board is here to help you as well.  We are all in this together!  Below is a list of the open positions with a short "job description".  

If you are interesting in raising your hand to chair or be added to our PTA volunteer list, please don't hesitate to reach out.  We want to hear from you!  Please email ptabriarwood@gmail.com.

Staff Appreciation Chair
  • Organize luncheons during the school year for the Briarwood staff.  (An example of a luncheon that was done last year was collecting individually packaged food items that were placed in the teachers lunchroom.)  Arrange for small tokens of thanks during Teacher Appreciation Week in May. Coordinate volunteers for set up and to drop off items as appropriate.  Work with VP of Communications to ensure activities are well publicized
Book Fair 
  • Coordinate with Scholastic on book fair venue and supplies and work with VP of Communications to notify Briarwood Community of event.  Organize volunteers for set up and execution including preview days for classrooms, at least one evening for selling books and daytime openings.   May be hosted online only in school year 21-22.  Fairs are typically held both in Fall and Spring.

Volunteer Coordinator

  • Maintain volunteer database.  Reach out to volunteers and connect them to volunteer opportunities. 


Volunteer Background Check 

ALL volunteers within the Issaquah School District are required to complete an on-line background check application and training. You may complete this process just once for all schools within the district, but please check the box for each school you expect to serve. Processing of your application at the district level could take a week and you will not be allowed to volunteer in the school until approval is received. Don't delay, complete your application today!
