PTA Student Directory
The student directory is a great tool to get connected with other families. Having your child included enables others to keep in touch regarding playdates, birthday parties, and homework assignments.
North Clackamas School District uses ParentSquare as the primary tool for communicating with families, including for emergencies and school closures.
- Gives parents/guardians more control over how and when they receive messages
- Is an all-in-one communications platform that is more convenient
- Allows teachers to communicate with families using the same platform as the district and their school
- Has many added functions beyond communications.
Peach Jar is the district’s electronic flyer system. We post flyers on this. After you sign up, you will receive emails with electronic flyers. You can adjust the frequency of the emails and also view all of the school and district flyers on their website.
If you would like to help raise funds, there are some easy things you can do. You can join Amazon Smile, and connect your account. A Fred Meyer Rewards account is is another option.

Important Information about Volunteering
If you would like to volunteer at the school, you need to complete the district’s volunteer application which includes a background check. This is required to help in your child’s classroom, chaperone on a field trip, and help with PTA activities. The background check is valid for 2 year, so if you are new or have not volunteered in a while, complete the application. Complete this form now because it can sometimes take a couple of weeks for the background check to be completed.
The PTA is looking to fill some vacant positions. If you are interested, please email sunny@sunnysidepta
