I'd like to volunteer at Lacey Elementary. What do I need to do?
To volunteer in any North Thurston school, you will need to complete the online Volunteer Application
. For the safety of our children, this application gives the district permission to run a national background check. Application approval must be granted BEFORE
you can start volunteering in the school. This process can take up to two weeks.
At the beginning of each school year, the link to the online Volunteer Application
and a Volunteer Interest Form is sent home with your child. (You can also pick up these forms in the office.) It is very important that you complete all sections of the online Volunteer Application
. An incomplete application cannot be processed and will be returned to you for completion. This will result in a delay of your volunteer clearance.
Although not mandatory, please take the time to complete the Volunteer Interest Form. It is your opportunity to let us know where your areas of interest are in volunteering here at Lacey Elementary. It also helps us to better coordinate your interests with the schools actual needs.
I've completed a Volunteer Application, do I need to complete a Volunteer Interest Form too? It is not mandatory that you complete an Interest Form. It is however, in your best interest to do so. It is your opportunity to let us know your areas of interest, so that we can best coordinated them with the schools actual needs.
My child's teacher doesn't use volunteers, but I still would like to be involved. Are there other volunteer opportunities for me?
Yes!!! Consider volunteering as a Reading Tutor, in the workroom, or in another classroom. Contact your Volunteer Coordinator, Tiffany Cutler
and she can assist you in finding a volunteer placement.
