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 9:40AM – 11:10 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 9:45 AM.

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

SIGN UP HERE to help!​

(Must be a PTSA member to handle money.)

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!
