The more families are involved, the more kids succeed.


You don’t need teaching or professional experience to volunteer. The most important qualification is a genuine interest in helping our students and teachers maximize their potential.

In order to volunteer, you must complete a background check and the clearance process.

Peter S. Ogden PTA

We strive to make our school a better place for the students, staff and parents. We’ve helped raise money for office equipment, supplemental supplies, art supplies, etc. Not only do we help raise money, we also volunteer to help our teachers and school.

Our PTA meets weekly in the cafeteria on Friday mornings at 8:30.  Come join us!  You can meet other parents, assist in filling Popcorn Friday orders and learn more about how you can get involved at PSO.

Lunch Buddies

Ogden needs lunch buddies! The Lunch Buddy program connects community members, who have completed background checks, with students, who have received parental permission. Buddies meet once per week for lunch, as well as play board games or participate in outdoor activities during recess. The program is coordinated by the Foundation for Vancouver Public Schools.
