Popcorn Fridays

Consider this your personal invitation to be a part of popcorn Fridays! Each week LWES PTSA sells popcorn and fruit leather to students during recess. Volunteers are needed every week to make this happen: 

  • Two volunteers are needed on Thursday afternoons  from 1:05 PM - 2:45 PM to pop popcorn​.
  • Two volunteers are needed on Friday mornings from 9:50AM – 11:15 PM to sell fruit leather and popcorn during all first recesses. Please arrive at 9:30 AM to set up your table and chairs (undercover) so you are ready by 9:50 AM.

This is a fun volunteer opportunity and the kids love it!

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!

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
