Volunteer with LES
Please take a moment to let us know where you would be interested in helping out! Volunteer Opportunities Form for PTO
We have so many opportunities for volunteers! If you’re able to help for a couple hours you could assist with the set up of a Movie Night or if you’re looking to get more deeply involved and chair something like the Jog-A-Thon, we’ve got something for you. Please take a look at some of our existing positions below. We are so grateful for any and all family involvement, and it is such a necessary piece of our school community! As well, if you have any new ideas for ways to volunteer or events for the school, please reach out via email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visit Help at School and make sure “Louisville Elementary School” is selected to view all the current volunteer opportunities in your child’s classroom and LES School Events. We also encourage you to look for opportunities in other grade levels and classes, if those are a better fit for your schedule or interests...any and all involvement is welcome and appreciated!! Complete your annual background screening, and you’re good to go for the year. If the cost of the background check is a barrier to volunteering, please contact us at email@example.com for confidential assistance.

Garden to Table The LES garden team works directly with teachers and students to implement fall and spring lessons for each classroom in our seasonal vegetable garden. During lessons students plant, harvest, and sample a wide variety of fresh organic produce. In addition, they help prepare the garden for upcoming seasons. Volunteers are needed to join the LES Garden Leads in coordinating lessons with teachers, assist students as they tend the garden during school hours, or help care for the garden during summer break. No garden experience necessary; the partner organization Garden to Table provides all supplies and weekly garden support.
New Family Ambassadors Connect with families who are new to LES by answering questions and/or sharing information to help them feel supported as they initially join our school community!
Thank you for volunteering!
