There are many ways to get involved at Longfellow. From volunteering at the school to colleting box tops at home--we have
something for everyone!
Folder Stuffers Thursday mornings at 8:20 in the cafeteria--Folder stuffing involves placing informational flyers in the students' yellow
communication folders that go home every Thursday. This task saves teachers up to 30-45 minutes on Thursdays. This time can instead be utilized instead for classroom instruction and preparation. If you have more time, you are welcome to help with multiple classes. The teachers are super appreciative of this service.
Classroom Volunteer There are many opportunities throughout the year to help out in your child’s classroom. Some teachers have a need for weekly volunteers to help with various tasks in the classroom. Other ways to volunteer in the class—Sign up to help with class parties, 100th day of school activities, Field Day, Field Trips and more!
Library Volunteer Have 30 minutes? An Hour? Maybe a minute here and there? Come help out in the library during your child’s class or anytime. There are always books to return to the shelves and help is needed to log the children on the computers. Join other volunteers who enjoy reading, finding out what great books are available for our children to read, and helping Ms. Young maintain our beautiful library displays. Stop by and let Ms. Young give you an orientation on how to volunteer. Be sure to become a registered VIPS volunteer and sign in at the front desk first.
To volunteer at the school parents must complete the Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) registration process. The important things to remember are to 1) register online and 2) take your picture ID to the Longfellow front desk.
