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, grandparent or guardian and would like to volunteer at Lake Harriet, you must submit the Volunteer Form on-line or, alternatively, you may download the form to print, complete by hand and return to either campus school office.  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 a field trips, tutoring etc., click here to download a copy of the
Criminal Background Check form, complete by hand and either personally hand in a sealed envelope to the school secretary along with $5.00 or mail to the Minneapolis Public School along with $5.00 (see address on page 1 or 4 of the form).  Processing will take 2 weeks.  This form is to be completed every two years.

Prior to volunteering, please review the linked Volunteer Policy.
