Our community thrives on volunteers like you!

The start of school is the perfect time to take a few moments to get ready to volunteer!

Meadowlark thrives on its family of volunteers, for everything from front office help, Learning Community coordination and support, to school-wide functions. There is an option for everyone – whether you wish to pursue background-checked activities where you work with students or whether you just wish to help off-campus by volunteering your time and skills.

To volunteer during school hours with student contact (i.e. LC help, front office, etc.), you need to be background checked via BVSD. The first step in that process is to fill out the application through RevTrack. From there, you can choose to be fingerprinted ($40, which lasts through your tenure as a parent in BVSD) or have your driver’s license checked ($17, must renew annually).

Then, take a few moments to fill out the volunteer interest survey so we know what your interest is in volunteering!

Meet and Greet and Welcome Back BBQ

From the Family Welcome Letter sent out by Denise on Friday:

We would like to invite all of you to join us for our second annual Meet & Greet and Welcome-Back BBQ events! Our Learning communities will be open from 4:00-5:00 pm. This is a casual time for students to meet their team of teachers and see their school to make the first day of school easier. We will then move the festivities to the Hug and Go Loop and the sports field east of the main entrance for a family barbecue sponsored by the Meadowlark PTSA. Please see the Welcome Back BBQ flyer for all the event information.

The main course of hamburgers and hotdogs will be provided by the PTSA, and we are asking families to bring something to share to support this fun event. In addition to the many volunteer roles, we are asking families to please bring the following based on the Learning Community of your YOUNGEST or ONLY student:

  • Preschool and Kindergarten and 1-2 LC: Side dishes
  • 3-4 LC: Salads
  • 5-6 LC: Desserts
  • 7-8 LC: Fruit

We need a few hands to make this kick off event run smoothly for all our students and families.  Since you will be there anyway, please think about helping out. Click here to see where you can lend us a hand!
