Volunteering:

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Mark Twain Elementary.  Please read the Lake Washington School District Volunteer Handbook and complete an application prior to volunteering.  We will check all volunteer’s approval status.
 
 A few reminders: 

  • Sign in and wear a badge 
  • Wear professional attire 
  • Maintain student confidentiality 
  • Turn off your cell phone 
  • Communicate with the teacher when you are and are not able to volunteer 
  • Do not bring younger children to school during your volunteer hours 
  • Model school rules and expectations

A copy of the district Volunteer Handbook is available in the main office and can be found on the LWSD website
 
Classroom Visits:

We welcome parents/guardians to our school and encourage parent’s involvement in our school.  If you wish to volunteer in your child’s classroom please contact the teacher directly and arrange and convenient time.  All classroom visits must be set up in advance.  If you need assistance please contact the main office.
 
Field trips:

We encourage parents to participate in field trips.  For liability reasons, we cannot accommodate siblings on trips.  Parents must have a volunteer application on file.
 
Student Volunteers: 

Student volunteers must be LWSD approved and their approval on file at the Twain office.  Non- Twain students are not permitted to enter Twain during school hours without approval.
