Volunteers Help Our School Thrive

The PTA would like to extend an enormous thank you to all our volunteers.  Whether you work in the classroom, tutor, volunteer on a committee or for an event—you name it—we can’t do it without you.  For this, we thank you. Part of what makes Lawton a successful school is the tremendous amount of family involvement.

How Do I Volunteer? Who Can Volunteer?

There are many opportunities to volunteer at Lawton for parents and community members alike.  All volunteers at Lawton need to fill out a Volunteer Background Information check.  Please return your completed form to Lawton’s main office if you would like to volunteer.

In addition to the background check, you are required to do the following:

  1. Adult Sexual Misconduct Prevention Video
  2. Sign the volunteer handbook
  3. Fill out a volunteer application

All this information can be found by clicking here.

What are Some Volunteer Opportunities?

If you are interested in finding out the many various ways you can volunteer at or for Lawton or if you already have an event in mind, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Jennifer Wenrick to learn more. Volunteering in the classroom is coordinated by the classroom teachers and room parents.

Volunteer needs also are also posted in the newsletter throughout the year.
