Volunteer Opportunities at Burroughs
Tuesday, October 15, 2019 10:05 AM

Volunteering at Burroughs is a great way to get involved, make new connections, and support our students, teachers, staff, and many of our programs!  There is a place for everyone - daytime and evenings opportunities are available. For a complete list of opportunities, visit our Volunteer Sign Up Page  or email Erin Albu, PTA Volunteer Coordinator, with questions or interest.
The following programs are actively seeking volunteers. As always, these activities cannot happen without parent support and involvement!  Thank you in advance for your consideration.
BRAVO: Volunteer Opportunity for Music Lovers
Share your love of music and get involved in your child's classroom by volunteering for the BRAVO Music Appreciation Program! Volunteers are still needed for the following classes: Mr. Templeton, Ms. Blossey, Ms. Berg, Mr. Torline, Mr. Kilibarda (half of the year), and Ms. Kennedy. Attend two training sessions (one in fall, one in winter) and present six fun and engaging lessons throughout the year. All presentation materials are provided and no music experience is necessary. If you're considering volunteering but are short on time, partner up with another parent to split the lessons! Visit the BRAVO page on the Burroughs website or email Alyssa Northrop to learn more or volunteer for the BRAVO program.

Lunchroom Volunteers Needed
If you are looking for a low commitment way to volunteer at Burroughs, consider helping in the lunchroom! We rely on lunchroom volunteers every day from 11 am until 1 pm to help the kids open containers, pass out napkins and forks, and help them learn how to sort their garbage. Sign up here or email Stacy Thoma with questions!
Seeking Volunteers for the Fall for Burroughs Auction
There are many volunteer needs at the upcoming Fall for Burroughs auction on Friday, November 8th at the American Swedish Institute! Many opportunities, like guest registration, are as short as an hour. All opportunities are an excellent way to meet others in the Burroughs community-or invite a friend to join you! We would be grateful for any and all volunteer support you can offer-please see our sign-up page for current openings. Please let Jennie Hartman know if you have any questions about the auction venue or volunteering at the auction. 
Media Center Volunteers
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 here so we can try to get coverage every school day.  Thank you for your help!
