Volunteers

The PTO volunteers are vital to our school by helping with open house and curriculum nights, assisting the nurse with health screenings, making copies, selling concessions at various fundraising events throughout the year and helping serve holiday feasts in the cafeteria as well as staff appreciation meals.

We appreciate all amounts of help we can get. Throughout the year we will send out emails and posts to Facebook requesting volunteers. Choose as much or as little time as you like to volunteer with what sounds fun to you. We’d love to have you.

Please review the volunteer guidelines through the District Office. You may print and fill out a form online or pick one up at the school’s Front Office. Filled out forms are to be turned into the school’s Front Office.

2019-2020 District Volunteer Guidelines

If you are interested in becoming a VOLUNTEER HERO, please email us at LTHMSPTO@gmail.com with your contact info and the best day/times you are available or use the event sign-up you received via email or Facebook. You may also contact us using the Contact Page on the Home screen. We look forward to hearing from you!

Open House & Curriculum Nights

Volunteers will sell food, drinks, candy and spirit gear. All concessions are $1 each, so taking cash and making change is easy. PTO will take any credit card payments via our Square device. Volunteers will be trained how to hand out PTO literature, encourage email sign-ups and make people feel welcome. We are always in need of such help during these events since parents are eager to find out information and buy spirit gear such as P.E. uniforms.

Health Screenings

This is a very important task which is required by the district annually. Volunteers will be trained by the school nurse on how to help her perform hearing and eye testing for students in the her office. Testing is usually scheduled at the beginning of the school year. Testing can take 1.5 hours daily and 1-2 weeks to get through all of the students who need it. Please feel free to sign up for just one 30 minute shift on one day or multiple days/time if that fits your schedule.

Concessions

Volunteers will sell food, drinks and candy at events. All concessions are $1 each, so taking cash and making change is easy. PTO will take any credit card payments via our Square device. We are always in need of such help during these events: Bash, Winter Wonderland, Arti Gras, Fun Food Fridays.

Fun Food Fridays Sign Up

Copies

Volunteers will be trained on how to make copies for teachers, staff, and front office. We would like to have 3 volunteers come in once per week on a regular day of their choice. Training will be provided.

Holiday Feasts

There is always a great need for volunteers to help the cafeteria serve these wonderful meals. They never have enough staff available to efficiently serve these because of the many separate items which come with these hearty meals. Volunteers make these events run very smoothly.  Volunteers will receive basic training 10 minutes before their shift on how to serve the item of their choice. Volunteers will receive a free meal to enjoy with their student. Please feel free to sign up for just one 30 minute shift or multiple shifts if that fits your schedule.

Staff Appreciation

Volunteers will help set up our once a month Staff Appreciation Day and/or End of Year Staff Appreciation in May.
