Current Volunteer Needs

Looking for ways to get involved in your child’s school? Please consider volunteering for a position on the PTA Board, volunteering in the classroom or helping out with an event.  These are some of our current needs but we have many other volunteer opportunities so please contact Judy Findley or Dawn Robinson at volunteerspepta@gmail for details!

Garden Recess Volunteer
Winter/Spring 2018 signup – dates are available now. Please help us give kids another recess alternative -time in the garden! For more information about volunteer needs and date, click on the NEW Signup Genius now. Training is provided.

For questions or more information, or if you are also interested in information about our Garden Enrichment Classes after school, contact Dawn Robinson at

Yearbook Assistance Needed
We are looking for a volunteer to help with sending order forms home and collecting money for our 2017-18 Sand Point Yearbook. Lifetouch has already sent us the order forms. We need someone to hang posters in the halls, send home order forms, collect money and keep a list of student orders. Please call Sandy in the office at Sand Point Elementary at 206-252-4640 if you would like help.

Art Class Volunteer:
Art Classes for grades 2/3-4/5 are every Monday through April 23rd. We are looking for 2 volunteers for each class to help things run smoothly. We have volunteers for 3 out of 5 classes but really hope to add volunteers for Mr. Conway and Mr. Kanaly’s classes.

Volunteers arrive 20 minutes before class to set up and stay 20 minutes after class to clean up. Classes are taught by Mylen Huggins, Artist in Residence. No art experience needed, just a willingness to assist. If you are able to volunteer or have questions, please contact Kris Van Houten at

Dates: Mondays, 1/22 – 4/23
Times: 20 minutes before class (set up) through 20 minutes after class (clean up)

Schedule for grades 2/3 and 4/5:
8:20-9:00:   Ms. Manzo
9:40-10:20:  Mr. Conway **volunteers still needed
10:20-11:00: Ms. Cater
11:45-12:25: Mr. Kanaly
12:25-1:05: Ms. Miller


Food Pack Volunteer
Sand Point Elementary and the University Food Bank teams up to provide supplemental food to our Squirrels in need. We need volunteers! Please click on the link, print and return this form. If you are unable to print a copy, please check with the office for a copy, in person. The volunteer commitment is twice a month on Fridays at noon. Lots of hands make light work!

Marathon Club Volunteer
Marathon Club is a fun way to get kids moving and awake so that they will be ready to learn when the bell rings. Volunteers are needed to set up bar codes and set up/monitor safety of tablet(s), cheer students on, inform students when it is time to put bar codes away (allow time prior to 7:50 bell for kids to get their backpacks and be ready to report to class), then put all boxes and tablet(s) away. Volunteers do stand out in the elements on less-than-beautiful days (umbrella and coffee acceptable accessories for volunteers), but it is oh-so-worth it to cheer on the kids, keep them motivated, and to see their smiles when they hit their milestones.

Midday work better for you? We would love to have volunteers willing to cover recess times. Mr. O’Brien is currently covering those himself but could use volunteer support. Also, if you are able to “fill in” occasionally for morning or recess, please let us know.

Contact Mr. O’Brien at or Karen Stukovsky at with questions or to sign up.

Safety Patrol Coordinator
Sand Point Safety Patrol started last year to keep students safe coming to school, and to provide 4th/5th graders a chance to practice leadership and helping others. We are looking for a parent to step into coordinating the program this year – with help from last year’s coordinator. The program is already established, the materials from last year are available! What we need is a parent who is willing to coordinate the schedule and ensure things are running smoothly. Please contact Judy Findley or Brooke Lawson if you are willing to step into this role or if you have more questions about the program at
