Activities & Volunteer opportunities

Our annual events and activities help advance our fundraising and community-building mission. Each of these events present opportunities for volunteering. To get notified of volunteer opportunities as they arise, fill out our Volunteer Survey! (Don't worry, this isn't a commitment, and no experience is required!) Volunteers sign up via sign-up genius.

Fall Fundraiser

September/October

Pinewood's fall fundraiser has been the Apex Fun Run for the last several years. This year, Covid-19 has made us temporarily hang up our racing shoes. Fall fundraiser info has been posted on the home page! Hopefully we can get back to in-person activities soon!

Turkey Bingo

Thanksgiving

This fun, community-building event usually takes place on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. It's an all-school bingo game where students bring family and friends to school to join the fun, and Mr. Town practices his comedic timing with Thanksgiving and turkey-themed jokes submitted by students. Volunteers give out fabulous prizes.

Book Fair

November, February, and April

Book fairs are held each year in November and February coinciding with conferences, and in April coinciding with the Spring Carnival. Volunteer opportunities include cashiering and setup/takedown.

Chairpeople: Janna Netland Lover and Elaine Nazareth

Staff Appreciation Dinners

November and February

Pinewood parents provide dinner for teachers and staff during conferences in November and February. Volunteer opportunities include making/purchasing food, setup and cleanup.

Movie Nights

February

Two movie nights are planned, one for grades K-2 and one for grades 3-5. It's a fun-filled night of movies, treats, pajamas and sleeping bags in the gym. Volunteers staff drop off and pickup, as well as concession stands.

Spring Carnival

April

The Annual PTO Carnival in the spring is a highlight, full of games, prizes, face painting and bouncy houses. Volunteer positions are too numerous to list.
