It truly takes an “all hands on deck” mentality to run a school effectively. If you are interested in volunteering in your student’s class, chaperoning a field trip, or helping out behind the scenes, please begin the background check process found here or on the Cascade School District website on the “parents and students” page.
The background check process takes two-four weeks, is completely free, and lasts for two years. We recommend completing this early in the school year so as to avoid delay.
You no longer need to provide proof of COVID vaccination in order to volunteer.
Move-a-thon - Friday, September 29
Our annual Move-A-Thon has been moved to the Fall, and students will get moving on Friday, September 29th! In fact, don't blink, it'll be here before we know it. It is time to get our students excited and ready to MOVE and earn some money for fun activities. The attached flier has more details about the changes this year.

- AMAZING plethora of prizes for Move-a-thon at ALL earning levels
- Country Kids Relay shirts
- Field trip $ for each student
- Staff Panther Stores
- Student Panther Stores
- Teacher dinner at conferences
- Teacher dinner for Math Night
- PE equipment
- Recess equipment
- 5th grade Promotion refreshments & balloons
- Space themed cookies for OMSI Night
- THOUSANDS of dollars for the Book Vending Machine to support the "We LOVE To Read" program
- 1st week of school staff treats
- Bike Day snacks & water
- Every appreciation day under the sun, including our local police & fire
- Fun & festive signs out front (Welcome Back, Happy Teacher Appreciation Week, etc)
- and . . . . much more!
Below is the schedule to view your students' running time. Any parent is welcome to come watch and cheer, but you will need a background check to help/volunteer for the event.
