Suggested School Supply List

The PTA organization advocates for students and teachers in Salem and Washington DC. Your support not only supports our own local PTA unit, but allows Oregon PTA and National PTA to continue their important work.

Join our Facebook Group. This group allows you to post pictures, questions and announcements to our Sunnyside Community. It is a closed group, so posts can only be seen by members.

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.

Passive Fundraising

If you would like to help us raise funds, there are some easy things you can do. You can join Amazon Smile, and connect your account. We also have a Fred Meyer Rewards account, and we collect Box Tops. If you’re interested in more information about these, check out this page

Volunteering will look different this year. To volunteer for the school, you need to complete their volunteer application process. You complete an online form. Then they perform a background check. After that, you are cleared to volunteer for 3 years. You then need to apply again.

This year in-person volunteering will not be happening. There are still ways you can help though. Our PTA is looking to fill some vacant positions. Some positions we are currently looking to fill are Fundraising Coordinator and Yearbook Committee Members. If you are interested, please email sunnysidepta@gmail.com.
