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