The volunteer program at Lawndale Elementary School District is designed to encourage parent volunteers, while ensuring that steps are taken to protect the interests of our students. A school volunteer is a person willing to take time to share wisdom and experience with those on the threshold of the future…our students. A school volunteer helps to expand and enrich the students’ learning experiences by working under the direction of teachers and school staff. 

Education is a team effort, and volunteers are a very critical part of the school team. Your involvement on our campus tells our students that you are concerned, that you value them as people, and that you want to help them succeed and be the best they can be.

You are probably familiar with the old proverb “It takes a village to raise a child.” We are extremely appreciative of our community resources and thank you for providing your precious time, individual talents, and expertise as a school volunteer. 

To get started, please review the volunteer documents. Should you have any questions, please contact your school site's Community Liaison.
