How to sign up to volunteer at lunch and/or recess:
Again this year we are using VolunteerSpot (an online sign up and reminder tool) to organize volunteers. Please sign up – here’s how it works:
  1. Click this link to go to our invitation page on VolunteerSpot:
  2. Enter your email address: (You will NOT need to register an account on VolunteerSpot)
  3. Sign up! Choose the days you want to volunteer and which lunch and/or recess time slot you want to volunteer for. On any given day, you will see different sign-ups for each of the different lunch times and recess times. A few notes:
    • On early dismissal days, there is no recess and the lunch times are shifted.
      These differences have already been incorporated into the calendar on VolunteerSpot.
    • For the month of September, the teachers have asked that kindergarten parents/nannies/guardians do NOT volunteer to help at kindergarten lunch or recess – just to give the kids a chance to get used to the school. But they would really appreciate it if NON-KINDERGARTEN parents could sign up to help with the kindergartners in September. After September, we would love the help of the kindergarten parents/nannies/guardians at kindergarten lunch & recess.
    • VolunteerSpot doesn’t have a great way to automatically sign up for a recurring
      slot (i.e., every Monday), but we LOVE recurring volunteers. So if you are able to take a recurring slot and don’t feel like clicking on every day you want to sign up for, please email me at with the days/times you want to sign up for, your name, your email address, and your phone number and I will be happy to sign you up.
    • VolunteerSpot will send you automated confirmation and reminder messages.
      Also, as you sign up, VolunteerSpot will ask for your name and phone number in case something comes up at the school and we need to contact you by phone.
      Note: VolunteerSpot does NOT share your email address or phone number with anyone
      or send spam emails. Also, VolunteerSpot may show some commercial messages from their sponsors. Feel free to ignore these!

  1. On the days you sign up for, just come to the school, sign in at the office, get a
volunteer sticker, go to the playground or lunchroom, and check in with one of the paraeducators to see what help is needed.
