• Volunteer Opportunities

    E. Rivers loves our volunteers! Parents, grandparents, and community members are welcome to volunteer with us. If you would like to volunteer, contact Melissa Blair and Molly Hargather at eriverswelcomedesk@gmail.com or click on the links below. Please note that APS requires that all volunteers who work with children must complete the volunteer training.


    Concession Stand

    Every Saturday and Sunday in the Fall (September-November) and Spring (March-May), E. Rivers is host to Peachtree Road United Methodist Church’s (PRUMC) youth soccer league. Each day, hundreds of kids and parents come to play and watch soccer on our “Field of Dreams”.  

    Parent volunteers run the Lion’s Pause Concession Stand by selling drinks and snacks to the thousands of youth soccer participants that use our lower field.  We sell water, soft drinks, candy, chips and the ever popular ring pops! The money raised goes to the PTA to support all the great things PTA does for our school.  

    Each volunteer shift is about 2 hours long and all you need to do is show up, be friendly and sell snacks to our visitors.

    Volunteer Training

    Stop by for coffee & donuts and a quick orientation for new volunteers. For the safety of our children, APS requires that all volunteers who work with children complete a short training including watching a short video and filling out an information form. This includes PTA volunteers and room parents. Please bring a photo ID.

    If you have completed this training in the last five years, you are not required to complete it again.

    Can’t attend? Fill out the forms online and drop your completed paperwork by the welcome desk on the first floor. Visit https://www.atlantapublicschools.us/domain/14633

    International Dinner

    Come one, come all to the E. Rivers International Dinner!  We will celebrate the many cultures of our E Rivers family by dining together and enjoying entertainment. We will invite families to bring dishes from their native countries and dine together as one big school family. More details and a sign up for bringing food will be provided soon. For now, we need assistance planning.  If you can help the teacher’s Special Events Committee plan this exciting event, please email Ms. Roberts, ESOL Teacher, at ktroberts@atlanta.k12.ga.us

    Bake Sale

    It’s Bake Sale time during the Tree Sale and we need homemade baked goods. To ensure a good variety of items, we have assigned each grade a particular item, but if you have a special recipe that you love (such as nut-free or gluten-free) feel free to change.

    Please wrap items individually. Be creative with recipes and packaging. Wrap items in clear bags or cellophane and use ribbons, cute bags, colorful stickers, etc as a final touch. The prettier the presentation, the better it will sell. Check out Pinterest, etc for ideas!

    We also need volunteers to help work the bake sale. Please sign up at the Signup Genius link below to work a shift. It’s a great way to see the kids during this fun school event!

    Tree Sale

    Come out and support the PTA at the school year’s biggest fundraiser! No experience is necessary. E. Rivers needs your help setting up the lot, selling, trimming and loading beautiful Fraser fir trees. The tree sale is a (big) group effort and great way to meet other parents, make new friends, support the school, and enjoy the holiday spirit.

    Teacher Time Raffle

    Teacher Time Raffle is a great E. Rivers tradition and one of our students’ favorite activities of the year. They have a chance to win a fun activity with a favorite teacher or staff member.

    We need volunteers to help sell raffle tickets before school every morning, 7:30-8/8:15 in the lobby.  This is easy, fun and not too time consuming!

    Spring Picnic



    Fun Run

    Mark your calendars and plan to attend the annual E. Rivers FUN Run.

    For pre-K, Kindergarten and new parents, this is an event that you don’t want to miss.  You will love cheering your child on as they run around the track with their class mates.   As veteran parents know, we do need volunteers to help make this event a success – set up, break down, spirit sections, finish line, photographers, etc.   We also need a volunteer, (medium size male), to dress up in the Lion costume.  And, we need pre-K and K parents to volunteer for cheering sections along the outer route (after your children have finished running, of course).
