"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others"  -Mahatma Gandhi


When volunteers commit to serving at a school, students achieve higher grades, have access to more opportunities, and gain community connections to help them thrive.

Edmonds School District requires volunteers to be screened and approved for in-person work prior to being in the school. The new application process is available by HERE.  PTA membership is appreciated, but not required to volunteer. Volunteers of every time level are appreciated!

Sign-up links for individual events will be found here during the year!

Want to help our kids learn and grow and connect to our community? Events are coming up! We will have Sign-up Genius links for set ways to help our upcoming Book Fair, Bingo night, Carnival and Earth Day Clean-Up. Follow us on Social Media or contact Volunteer@TerraceParkPTA.com to let you know when events come up! 


Our teachers have requested an extra set of helping hands this year. Room parents communicate with the teacher to help with classroom needs and coordinate volunteering assignments. We are hoping to have a lead parent and an assistant Room Parent for each class. The role will vary with each classroom, but the Terrace Park PTA is happy to help you be the best room parent you can be! Check the link to see who is coordinating helpers in your class.

We are thrilled for the return of in person opportunities to serve our school, teachers and students for the 2022-23 year!

Volunteer with the PTA

Volunteers are the backbone of our organization.  Without volunteers we would not be able to offer all of the activities, events, programs or enrichment opportunities that make Terrace Park such an amazing school.  The list of needs a volunteer can fill are endless and the special talents of volunteers cannot be purchased.

Who Can Volunteer? 

You!  Working parents, stay-at-home parents, young adults, grandparents, aunts and uncles, community members-basically anyone can be an invaluable volunteer.  Even if you only have an hour to spare, we can use your help.  Unable to make it to the school during school hours?  There are plenty of volunteer activities that can be done from home.  For security, in-person volunteers must be screened and pre-approved by the Edmonds School District. Get screened now, approval lasts a year.

What Skills Are Required?  

A love of children is all that is required.  While there is always a need for those with expertise in a given area such as communications, marketing, social media, legislation, etc., there are endless tasks at every level.  From stuffing envelopes and stapling packets to supervising and directing children, there is truly something for everyone.

How Often Must I Volunteer?

There is no minimum amount of time required to volunteer.  If you have a spare hour or two once a year, that is enough.  You can run a table at math night, staple student handouts one week, or help at the Book Fair one afternoon.  If you are willing and able to commit more time throughout the year, there are countless volunteer opportunities available, such as heading an activity committee or joining the PTA board. Follow us for Sign-Ups for individual events during the year!

Why Do People Volunteer?

There are many reasons why people volunteer. 

  • Learn something new
  • Get to know our community
  • Gain new skills
  • Have a sense of purpose
  • Help your child's school be better
  • Explore a career

Thank you for all who showed up for our 2022 Campus Clean Up events!
Huge piles of bark were spread over weeded and cleared areas, bushes were trimmed, blackberries removed and garbage picked up! We couldn't do it without your input and effort!
Our school is better when we work together!

**    Our 2023 Earth Day Clean-up will be April 22nd.    **

2022 Edmonds Arts Festival reopened and was fantastic!

We were thrilled to have this art showcase return to the community!  Father’s Day Weekend • June 17-19th

Art makes your brain grow!

Highlighting student art from every school and grade across the Edmond School District wouldn't be possible without participation of a few volunteers from each school. Thank you for supporting the Edmonds Art Festival by supporting creativity, attending and, of course, volunteering! We enjoyed seeing you June 17-19th at the Frances Anderson Center & Field in Edmonds and look forward to 2023!

The Edmonds Arts Festival is a volunteer-run event, and we need your help to make it happen! Every year volunteers are needed with:

  • Information Booth
  • Artist Booths
  • Gallery Arts
  • Parking & Transportation
  • Kids Arts

If you want to meet your neighbors, help your community, and celebrate the artists' return, consider filling a shift next Spring!
