    Volunteers are the reason Montlake has many vibrant programs, activities and strong classroom support! Volunteering helps create a wonderful and warm community for our kids and is a great way to get to know the families, teachers and staff at Montlake. 

    Montlake School and its PTA offer opportunities to accommodate every interested volunteer from one time volunteering such as field trips or help with a PTA event to year-round engagement (e.g. room parent, lunchroom volunteer, reading coach, or a PTA officer role). Montlake teachers and students appreciate your involvement. 

    This year, all volunteer forms must be turned into the office by 10/31/2018. If your form is not turned in by then, you will not be able to participate in classroom, field trip, or any other on campus volunteering.* Our student and staff safety is of upmost importance, and we appreciate your cooperation as we implement these policies.

    *Families registered after 10/31/2018 will be the exception.
