How to Volunteer
Volunteers are the heart and soul of Broadview Thomson PK-8.
BTPK8 is composed of an incredibly diverse student population, and the school community that we have created is unique and special. Volunteers work at all levels of the school to help make BTK8 the very best school it can be. Opportunities include helping out to beautify the school grounds before the school year starts, helping stuff student orientation packets, organizing teacher and parent appreciation events, volunteering to serve on the PTA board, and volunteering at all-school events.
Do You Have 1 Hour/Month?
We Get It – family/work/school keeps you busy. However, you don’t have to commit a lot of time to make a difference. Just an hour a month helping at school events, PTA fundraisers, or helping on the school grounds will make a BIG difference. See AND sign up to volunteer for current events here:

PTA Volunteer Myths – Busted!
Myth: The PTA has all the help they need.
Myth: Volunteering for the PTA takes too much time.
Myth: PTA volunteers need to be at the school during the day.
Myth: The PTA has the same volunteers year after year and everyone knows each other.
Myth: The PTA is all set with their activities and events for the year.
FACT: Each year, the PTA brings back favorites and tries new activities, fundraisers and events. Those new ideas come from volunteers. While we try to plan ahead, it’s only the beginning of the school year and there’s still plenty of time to do even more for the students and school this year. And we want you to be a part of it all!
