Check back soon for updates!




Whether you have 30 minutes or much larger blocks of time, there are many opportunities to make the lives of kids at Shawnee Trail better.  And it doesn't matter if you travel for work, work from home, or parent 24-7, there's a place for you!



Background Checks


If volunteering will take you beyond the front office of Shawnee Trail, you need to request a background check. Background Checks should be submitted at least two weeks prior to volunteering. And it must be completed once per school year—after July 1st.







Volunteer Opportunities:
"My Interests & Skills"

Take a look at the opportunities available to volunteer this year, and check any that match your interests, skills—and availability. A few examples include:


  • "Power-of-an-Hour"— These jobs take 1 hour or less,  can be done entirely at home and greatly lift the burdens of our teachers and staff!

  • Grade-level Photographer groups —Capture memories of your kids and their fellow classmates and share them with the school

  • Laminating— Teachers LOVE having help in the workroom. Laminating happens on specific days —every week, or every other week. Training is provided.
