Immediate volunteer needs at Mira Vista:

We have a number of events and activities throughout the school year that need volunteers to make them happen. (Check out the full list here.) Below are a list of open positions that we need help with. We’ll regularly update this page throughout the year as the need arises.


The Mira Vista Library is open all week thanks to the dedication of its parent volunteers. Our district librarian, Heidi Bartsch, is here just one day a week for the elementary library and one day a week for the middle school library.

We need your help! Teams of two parent volunteers are needed for each day, from 8:30-11:30. We check books in and out, read to the younger students, and shelve books. It is a great way to contribute to the school, help lots of kids, and meet other teachers. Most of the current volunteers have done this for years, and love it!
