Washington Elementary School PTA(253) 571-5700

Home of the Cougars!


All of our school events and activities require volunteers to make everything run smoothly. If you are interested in volunteering, read about all of our activities and pick on that interests you. Please contact the Chairperson or if it says “Need a volunteer” contact one of our two Co-Presidents (no commitment required!) and they’d be happy to let you know what kind of work needs to be done and how much time it might take.

For Safety...
To keep our children safe, every adult (parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle) who would like to volunteer at Washington-Hoyt needs to submit the
Parent Legal Guardian Volunteer Form and a Driver’s License copy to the front office. Only after the form has been completed and the background check performed (it only takes them about a day to process) can someone volunteer to work with the kids. The forms are good for two years. Each teacher will receive a list of parents and adults who have been approved to volunteer at Washington-Hoyt. If your name is not on that list, teachers will not allow you to volunteer in the classroom or chaperone field trips. If you have any questions or would like to clarify your status, please call Pam Leach or Sara Lanz in the front office at 253.571.5700. Thank you!
