We LOVE our volunteers! Adults who volunteer in the classroom, chaperone field trips, help during field day, or work directly with students in any way (including PTSA after school events), are required to complete Tahoma’s background check and be cleared to volunteer. The background check process is done entirely on line (there is no longer a paper packet to fill out). If you have NOT completed an ELECTRONIC background check, please click here and complete it ASAP. Thank you!   

Do you have any FUN ideas? Of course you do!

Please let us know how you would like to use your talents and make Family FUN Nights the place to be!

Let's spoil our staff members with SWEET fun from the world of Candyland!!!

Please, help however you can with decorations, daily treat items, gift cards, and more. 

Sign up to help!

All items will be dropped off at the LWES front office by Friday, May 3rd.  Please, label your items as "Staff Appreciation."

Additional information and opportunities to help are coming soon!

WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) is a K-12 program that makes it easy for fathers (or father figures) to spend meaningful time with their children in a school setting. 

Volunteers are asked to spend at least one day (or 2 half-days) at Lake Wilderness Elementary supporting students and being a positive male role model through: Monitoring school property, helping with bus duty and greeting students as they arrive, working one-on-one or in small groups, reading, assisting with assignments, lunch, refereeing games, listening ears, and other student related needs. WATCH DOGS can volunteer any day they are available during the school year.

If you're interested in being a Watch DOG or getting more information, email Robert  to get connected or sign up for a shift HERE

All WATCH DOGS must be cleared by the Tahoma School District. Fill out your volunteer application here!
