Volunteer at Elm Creek!

Welcome to the Elm Creek Volunteer Program!  Volunteers are an important part of our school and we appreciate the time you share with our students and staff!  While some volunteers are able to volunteer weekly, others can only commit to a few times during the school year. We appreciate and encourage any level of participation.  There are many opportunities for volunteers to help from home too!




All volunteers must have a current volunteer application on file.  


Adult Volunteers   Adults over 18 wishing to volunteer at Elm Creek must complete the District Volunteer Application. This includes parents, grandparents or other extended family, community members, retirees, college students, etc.

Youth Volunteers   Middle school and high school students under 18 should print and complete the Youth Volunteer Application Form and schedule an appointment to meet with me and discuss current opportunities.



There are many ways to get involved at Elm Creek – both at school and at home.  

Special or One-Time Events:  Field Days, Health Screening, Art Adventure, Classroom Parties & Field Trips

Ongoing Opportunities: At-Home Projects, Cafeteria Volunteers, Kindergarten Lunch, Media Center, Laminating, Special Project Requests (classroom prep for teachers), Classroom Assistants, Friday “Popcorn Patrol”

PTO Events:  Apex Fun Run, Scholastic Book Fair, Turkey Bingo, Holiday Gift Shop, Spring Carnival, Silent Auction, Family Fun Events



Our school district tracks volunteer hours each year.  Parents, community and youth volunteers who help onsite during the school day are asked to sign in and out using the volunteer computer in the main office.  By logging in and out of the system when you are at school volunteering, your hours are automatically tracked and saved. 


Thank you for volunteering – our teachers, students, and staff appreciate the time and support you give to Elm Creek!  Please contact me if you have any questions about volunteering – I look forward to working with you during the school year!
