Be an active part of our mission and help us make Einstein even better!

By volunteering, you are making a HUGE impact not just to your child’s academic and social success, but also to all the children at Einstein. Programs such as Art Docent, Family Nights, Fruit Cutting and Fun Run would not exist without your time and talents. Thank you!

 

Volunteer Opportunities

We offer a range of opportunities for making a difference. If help is not needed this year, we would love for you to consider the position for future years.

In order for us to better organize and monitor all of our volunteer data, we also use a database provided by Airtable.

Many employers match hours spent volunteering. For example, at Microsoft, volunteer time and talent are matched at $25/hr.

The more time you volunteer and report, the more money Einstein receives!

Volunteer Expectations

  • To ensure the safety of our students and staff, all individuals must go through the district’s volunteer application process online and be approved before beginning a volunteer assignment. It's FREE and takes just a few minutes. You may also pick up an application in the office. Approval is valid for two years. After that, you must reapply.
  • Review the Volunteer Orientation Information and LWSD Volunteer Handbook.
  • When you come to the school to volunteer:
    • 1. Sign in at the main office.
    • 2. Wear a name tag and volunteer badge while you are in the school building.
    • 3. Sign out before you leave the building.
  • Keep all student information confidential.
  • Contact your teacher or Chair if you cannot make your scheduled volunteer time.
  • In accordance with LWSD policy, if you are volunteering in the classroom, office, library or hallway during school hours (8:50-3:30), we ask that you do not bring younger siblings along.
  • Refrain from making personal calls or texting while at the school volunteering.
  • It’s okay to say no. If you can’t volunteer, have a scheduling conflict or simply don't want to, let us know and we’ll find someone who can.
  • Our volunteers are important and we want you to be happy! If you ever have any concerns with your current volunteer placement, please contact volunteers@einsteinptsa.org.
