Classroom Volunteer Signups

Help is often needed in the classroom as well. Covid prevented in-class volunteers, but this is slowly shifting. Please contact individual teachers to find out what tasks might be available.

Mrs. Vroman, our teacher librarian, often needs help in the library. Contact her at evroman@osd.wednet.edu to find out what help might be needed.

Volunteer Registration

(The pandemic aside) in normal years, more than 3,600 people annually choose to volunteer in Olympia Schools. Each year volunteers must complete a Volunteer Application (available online or in paper form). You may complete this form now to be ready for when more volunteer opportunities open up.
