Volunteering in Classrooms or for Field Trips
  • If a volunteer is coming-in for a one-day event: they do not need to complete the volunteer process, they will be treated as a visitor.  They can sign-in at the welcome desk at Door #5 and leave their ID. They must always be under teacher supervision. 
  • Classroom volunteers: must complete orientation with Family Liaison Elizabeth Hale and supply reference contact info.  They do not need to complete background check as long as they will be working under teacher supervision.  Connect with Elizabeth if you are interested in volunteering in your child’s classroom or another classroom. 
  • Field trip volunteers: must complete background check.  Background checks are free but need about a 2-week processing time.  They are valid for two years. http://volmps.mpls.k12.mn.us/apply  
  • We also have opportunities for volunteering for special events throughout the year: picture day, international walk/bike days, cultural celebrations, bookfair, conferences, family nights, fundraisers, carnival, field day and more!
