From helping teachers in classrooms, donating dollars, to popping popcorn at Movie Night, volunteers are an essential part of the West TV community. It makes an impact on the programs and benefits we can provide to our children, teachers and staff.
If you weren’t able to attend one of the Volunteer Orientation sessions held early in the school year, please read this message for some quick and easy instructions for volunteering at West TV, along with a few reminders.
There are a few easy steps to get started:
Get signed up:
Get a Background Check – click here for the application and to learn more details on the volunteer process.
Watch for opportunities – they will be communicated weekly via the West TV PTC Monday Minutes and as needed directly from the Volunteer Coordinator.
Sign up to volunteer – use this link to log in to your MyImpactPage (MIP) account and sign up to volunteer.
When you arrive at school:
Log in to MIP at the computer, select the activity you are volunteering for, click Start Timer
Retrieve your identification lanyard or a visitor's sticker if you don't have one yet.
Complete your volunteer shift, wearing your lanyard i.d. at all times.
When you leave, log back in to MIP at the computer to clock out.
Logging out insures the staff knows who is in the building in case of emergency.
Keeping track of hours helps when applying for grants and for employer matching.
TIP: If you volunteer at home or after hours when the office is closed, you can still log your hours in MIP.
Per the Beaverton School District, siblings are not allowed to come with parents who are volunteering at school.
Please use the restrooms next to the staff room across the hallway of the main building.
When working with students, be sure you are within “sight and sound” of a school staff member.
Maintain confidentiality by not disclosing student information (test scores, performance, etc.) with anyone other than the teacher.
