Volunteering at Lake Harriet

We still need volunteers for a few key positions in 2017-2018. Please visit our signupgenius for a list of all open positions.

Each year, hundreds of parents and community volunteers donate their time and talents to Lake Harriet Community School.  Parent involvement is a key component that drives LHCS excellence. We encourage, and need, all families to get involved in their child’s education through volunteering.

If you are a parent, guardian, grandparent or community member and would like to volunteer at Lake Harriet, you must submit an on-line Volunteer Form.  Please note the on-line software doesn’t encrypt the data.  The Volunteer Form is kept on file for nine years  - from kindergarten through eighth grade for your first child, so if you have previously filled it out, you do not need to fill out again unless you have moved or changed names.

Background Checks     If you think you will ever help out in a way where you would be unsupervised by a teacher or alone with children such as chaperoning field trips, tutoring etc., click here to complete the Volunteer Background Check Request Form. If you are unsure whether you have a current background check on file, you can contact Rhonda Bonnabeau at rhonda.bonnabeau@mpls.k12.mn.us to find out the status of your background check. Please note that once you start the process to complete a background check you will receive an email with the subject "Action Request" which will contain a link to complete your background check.  You must respond to required steps within 48 hours. Once completed, background checks are valid for 2 years. 

Prior to volunteering, please review the linked Volunteer Policy.
