Get Involved

At our school we have many ways to get involved. You can volunteer time in the classroom or at recess.  If you are not available during the day, there are several committees that you can participate in.

We understand that everyone has very busy lives.  It can be challenging finding time to volunteer at the school. However, involvement can work around your schedule.

Volunteer Requirements

All volunteers are required to complete the district volunteer application and background check, and volunteer training.

At Sunnyside, we value the relationships between the school and our families. We welcome parent volunteers into our schools to support our teachers and enhance the school experience of our students. The purpose of this training is to inform all volunteers of the regulations and protocols they need to comply with to volunteer at Sunnyside Elementary School. We ask that all parents go through this very brief training (15 minutes) before they volunteer at the school, so they have a complete understanding of the role of a volunteer, and have a clear understanding of the parameters of a volunteer. This orientation is in addition to the standard background check and  volunteer applications process all volunteers in our district need to complete. Thank you!

There will be volunteer trainings available before each PTA meeting. You can also email to arrange a volunteer training.
