In today's schools, there are far more jobs and responsibilities than there are people to do them. By helping with special events and routine tasks, volunteers allow teachers and staff to really focus on helping children learn and grow. Volunteers allow our schools to offer children and families more services.
If you are interested in volunteering in our school district, we encourage you to contact the school of your choice to see what opportunities are available. To learn more about individual school activities, please contact individual schools. Find the directory of schools here.
Some examples of possibilities are:
- Help in a classroom
- Assist with playground or lunchroom monitoring
- Help students build math skills
- Assist students in the high school Career Centers
- Supervise safety patrol teams before and after school
- Share your specialized skills in classrooms or with student clubs
If you have something different you would like to offer than what was listed above, we encourage you to talk with the school where you wish to volunteer.
Most schools have an active parent organization that relies on volunteers to carry out its mission of supporting the students and staff at their school. Volunteers assist with community building activities such as back to school barbecues, school carnivals, science fairs and book fairs; coordinating staff appreciation activities; and organizing and promoting school fundraisers, including Dine-Out events at local restaurants.
Activities and Athletics
Volunteers make important contributions to district activities and athletic teams. In addition to the required background check, coaches must have a current First Aid and CPR card on file. Please contact the Athletic Secretary at your school to sign up for the school district training opportunities.
Coaches may also be required to complete additional training such as, but not limited to, epinephrine, non-injectable medications, and glucagon. The school’s Athletic Secretary will inform you if you must complete any additional training.
