Volunteering at Lake Harriet

We still need volunteers for several 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 another unless you have moved or changed names.
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 download the Request for Background Check.  
Please complete and send to the district office indicated on the form along with a check for processing in the amount of $7.00. Processing background checks takes about two weeks from the time it is received.  Once approved, background checks are good for two years.  

Prior to volunteering, please review the linked Volunteer Policy.
