If you choose to fill out your volunteer application on-line your information will be saved for future years of volunteer service. Your online application can be renewed annually – no need to reapply entirely as in the past.
What makes Lafayette so successful? Students, staff and many, many volunteers working together as a team. We invite you to be a part of that team. Below you will find brief descriptions of areas where you are needed.
Room Parents & Classroom Helper
A wonderful way to get involved in your child’s school! Each class needs a room parent to assist the teacher and the PTA. Teachers’ needs vary but your duties may include maintaining a classroom telephone directory, arranging field trips, organizing parent assistance on special projects, coordinating Teacher Appreciation Week for your class, or planning a class party. Sign up to be the main room parent or a classroom helper!
One of our most important volunteer requests, tutors are needed for individual or small group help in both general and special education classrooms. Your school volunteer coordinator will work with the teacher to coordinate days and times that are convenient for you. You can give as little as one day a week for a couple of hours or an hour every day. Help with reading, math, or another subject as you prefer. Lafayette welcomes all parents, friends, or community members to volunteer and make a difference in a young person’s education.
Note: The Seattle School District requires all volunteers to submit a completed Volunteer Application Form with background check prior to working with students. Copies of this application are available from the school office. For more information visit: http://www.seattleschools.org/families_communities/volunteer
