Volunteering at Burroughs

“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.

If you’d like to learn more about volunteering your time and talents at Burroughs on a PTA committee, please contact PTA Volunteer Coordinator, Jennie Hartman.

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. You can sign up to help out when it works for you - there is no specific time commitment.

Sign up on this Google docs link. Lunch starts at 11:00 a.m. and ends at 1:05 p.m. each day. Contact Stacy Thoma if you have any questions.


Classroom Volunteers:

Classroom volunteer needs are coordinated by individual teachers. Please see your child’s teacher for details on their classroom’s needs. 


Volunteer Form & Policy:

Classroom Tutors, Lunchroom, Bravo, and Art Adventure Volunteers must complete our volunteer form and read the MPS Volunteer policies and procedures each school year. Please complete the form and turn into the office on an annual basis.

Classroom field trip chaperones, special event and special project volunteers do not need to complete a volunteer form.

Overnight trip chaperones require the form, reading the MPS Volunteer policies and procedures, and background check ($5.00 processing fee must be included). Please see Melody in the office for more information.
