Volunteer Opportunities

School Volunteers are very much appreciated for their contributions to the learning process, educational goals, and extra-curricular activities at Zion Lutheran School.  Volunteers contribute time, resources, and expertise and provide needed support to help ensure educational success for all children.  Lunch servers, assisting a teacher as requested, library helper, and office volunteer are examples of ways you can help.

Being involved in our Parent-Teacher League (PTL) is another great way to help your child’s school and get to know many great parents.

In order to provide a documented, safe and secure environment for students entrusted to us, any volunteer that has the potential to be alone with a student will be required to go through a professional background check.
