Volunteer at Waite Park!

If you have a special skill, or just some free time to give back to your community. Waite Park Community School needs your help. We are always in need of volunteers to put books away in the Media Center.  This can be done on a flexible schedule.  Classroom assistants are needed on a regular basis (approximately 1-2 hours twice a week).  Classroom assistant duties vary by teachers' needs, and can be anything from preparation of classroom materials to reading aloud.  Volunteering

in the classroom means getting to know the teachers and kids that make up the Waite Park community.  And studies show that kids whose parents volunteer in their school do better and have a greater chance of graduating from college. 

To be a classroom volunteer, parents must watch a brief video and complete background check forms.  This can now be done on-line, by visiting Minneapolis Public Schools Volunteering Site.
