"No One Can Do Everything, But Everyone Can Do Something."
Did you know that there are many Engagement, Enrichment and Fundraising opportunities at Burroughs Community School that need volunteers? We encourage, and need, all families to get involved in their child's education through volunteering. Additionally, it's a great way to meet friends and foster community within Burroughs.
We need many volunteers for various activities and programs. Find more information and sign-ups on the PTA website.

Lunchroom Volunteer Opportunities:
We always welcome lunchroom volunteers! Lots of volunteers are needed to help students open lunches, pass out forgotten utensils or napkins, as well as help them sort their trash and recyclables. Best of all this is a great opportunity to get to know the students and staff! You can sign up to help out when it works for you - there is no specific time commitment.
Sign up on the google doc linked above. Lunch begins at 11:30 a.m. and ends at 1:30 p.m. each day - sign up for one 40 minutes shift or stay for all three!
Media Center Volunteer Opportunities:
We are in dire need of daily volunteers to reshelve books!! About 150-200 books get returned to the media center every day, and with about 1 hour of volunteering, you can help those books get back to their shelves. Ideally, we would like to have 2 volunteers every school day, but you can choose the time of day that works best for you to volunteer between the hours of 9:10 AM and 3:30 PM. If you are interested in this quiet and flexible opportunity, please email Michelle Hines to arrange a brief training. Once you have attended the training, please sign up in the document linked above so we can try to get coverage every school day. Thank you for your help!
Classroom volunteer needs are coordinated by individual teachers. Please see your child's teacher for details on their classroom's needs.
Volunteer Form & Policy:
Volunteers working with students without Burroughs staff present must complete our volunteer form and read the MPS Volunteer Expectations each school year. Please complete the form on an annual basis.
Classroom field trip chaperones, special events and special project volunteers do not need to complete a volunteer form.
There is additional information on the MPS volunteer website.
