GFPS Elementary School Volunteer Needs


GFPS Elementary School Volunteer Needs

A new semester is beginning in the Great Falls Public Schools, making it the perfect time to get your feet wet as a school volunteer. Try it out for the spring semester to see if it is the right fit for you. Volunteers are needed at all grade levels to work one-on-one or with small groups of students in a variety of subject areas, such as reading, math, science, and social studies at various elementary schools. A variety of shifts are available, but volunteers must be able to commit to coming in at least once a week and at a set time as negotiated with the classroom teacher. The average shift is between half an hour and an hour. Current schools with needs are: Whitter, Longfellow, Valley View, Loy, Lincoln, and Roosevelt. Additional schools may be added in the near future as requests come in.

This is considered a long-term commitment, and volunteers should plan on helping through the end of this school year. Volunteers should enjoy spending time with children, be patient, and able to follow the teacher’s instructions. Depending on the work assignment, volunteers may be subject to a background check. If you can help, contact Jessica at jbriggs@uwccmt.org or call 727-3400.
