Volunteers are an essential piece to our success here at Oak View!  Come make a difference in the lives of others!

When you complete a Volunteer Application and  Volunteer Interest Form with your contact info and email, you will be one of the first to hear about upcoming volunteer opportunities. Some opportunities are on-going, while others are one-time events or projects. New opportunities are always coming up; we hope that you will find the perfect fit for your schedule, personality, and talents.  Thank you for making a difference every day!

 Other Volunteer Opportunities

  • Media Center and Book Bag Assembly:  Do you love books?  So do our students.  We need some help shelving books in the media center and assembly take home book bags.  This is flexible as to the day of the week and time—you pick.  Please contact Tricia Ellingson, Volunteer Coordinator if you are interested 
  • OAK (Opportunities Around Knowledge)—Recess Classes:  We are looking for individuals to volunteer to run a class-1 time-, or classes-multiple days- over recess hours (11:15 to 1:00).  You may have a special talent to share (i.e. knitting, art, chess, etc.) or you could also be a help supervising already planned activities (i.e. computer lab gaming, enrichment board games, etc.).  This is a great opportunity for our students to spread their wings in new endeavors.  Does this interest you?  For more details contact Tricia Ellingson, Volunteer Coordinator if you are interested     



 Here are some procedures that volunteers should follow while at Oak View:

  • Be sure to complete a volunteer application.  Every volunteer must have a new application on file each year.
  • Sign in at the Volunteer Book in the office
  • Put on your Name Badge (volunteers are provided with their own name badge-wear it proudly!)
  • Sign out after you are done volunteering. Please be sure to log your hours. Volunteer hours are tracked and recorded each month, validating the importance of our volunteer program!
