Welcome to the Trillium Creek PTA!
So glad you stopped by to take a look! This is the website for all things TCPS PTA! You can get information on upcoming activities, links to join PTA or donate, check out our meeting minutes and budget, or sign up to volunteer.
You can also learn more about what Oregon PTA and National PTA are doing for our students. TCPS PTA is more than organizing fun school-events. We are working towards a better school experience for all our students. Join us!
If you’re new to TCPS or to WLWV School District, we must tell you that the PTA isn't really as overwhelming or intimidating as you may think. Relax and keep some of these tips in mind:
Don't be afraid to speak up. The best way to get involved is to join right in. If you have an idea, let it be heard. Go to Chairperson Directory on the left-side and reach out to any chairperson or board member to get connected!
Join a committee. We have many different committees like Forest Flyers, Green Team, Auction planning, or Pizza Bingo planning. Each committee helps organize different functions of our PTA. Think about what you might have to contribute and sign up or reach out to a chairperson or board member to get figure out the best fit.
Meet other parents. One of the best parts of the PTA is that it connects you with other parents at TCPS. You can make friends and expand both your own and your child's social circle.
This year, don't be afraid to get involved with the TCPS PTA! It can do a world of good for your child(ren) and TCPS.
Volunteers Needed For Scholastic Book Fair!
TCPS is hosting a Scholastic Book Fair the week of November 13-November 16. This is not a PTA-sponsored event, but a way for us to support the Trillium Creek library and our students’ love of reading.
The library needs volunteers to work the Fair during the day and one evening. Please consider volunteering! Follow the Volunteer Sign Up button on the left-hand side to see what shift you can fill.
Winter Craft Fair is Wednesday, December 5th!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the TCPS PTA survey. We will share our findings at the next general PTA meeting on November 14th at 6pm. Hope you can join us!
Working Parents Liaison!
Are you a working parent who finds it hard to connect with what is going on at TCPS and the PTA? Do you have ideas to contribute for the growth of the PTA but not sure how to share them? Well, we now have a Working Parents Liaison committed to representing the voices of the working parents who aren’t able to attend daytime PTA meetings, have ideas and suggestions for the success of the PTA, or can’t volunteer for PTA-supported events due to work schedules. Please reach out to Heather Brinkley, our new Working Parents Liaison, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are really wanting all parents to feel informed and included in what is going on at school and at the PTA.
