Volunteers for a single event (e.g., field trip) do not need to complete the online application.  Instead, parents can submit the Volunteer Application for a Single Event to the classroom teacher.  Volunteers are not permitted to bring children during their service hours.  

Volunteer Application for a Single Event

We are always in need of more valet volunteers. Please sign up for a shift, or contact Amy McCarty ( or Lisa Keston ( if you would like to help out. 


Each month, a different grade level is assigned valet duty.  

SEPT: 5th Grade, OCT: 4th Grade, NOV: 3rd Grade, DEC: 2nd Grade, JAN: 1st & K, FEB: 5th Grade, MAR: 4th Grade, APR: 3rd Grade, MAY:  2nd Grade, JUNE: 1st & Kinder

That said, spaces don’t always get filled so if greeting kids with a big smile every day is your thing, we encourage you to sign up at ANY point throughout the year!

If we do not have a consistent roster of volunteers, we will have to remove the service.

Thank you and please stay safe!
