If you are interested in volunteering you can fill out this form.

The PTA needs volunteers for the following:

  • Library - Our librarian Ms. Wong needs help from volunteers to return books on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. If you can help, just come by the library at the beginning or end of the school day and she will provide instructions. This is an easy and fun way to help the school out as well as to meet many of our resident bookworms and encourage their love for books! It’s also a wonderful opportunity for grandparents, uncles, and aunts, even parents and their children to volunteer together. She also needs help from volunteers who can read Chinese and help translate Chinese book titles to English.

  • Morning Snacks - We need your help any day of the week with sorting, sometimes cutting fruit, collecting/washing bins after recess and on Tuesdays at 11am to help sort fruit and snacks delivered for the snack program (delivery is between 10:15am and 10:45am). Sign up here!

  • Morning Drop-off - Volunteers are needed from 7:30-8:00am to help with traffic control in the drop off area in front of the school. Sign up here!

  • Afternoon Pickup - Volunteer at pickup from 1:45-2:00pm to set up traffic cones and help keep cars out of the bus zone and crosswalks.
