Volunteer Opportunities

Dear Volunteer:


On behalf of our students and staff, I want to welcome you to Longfellow Elementary School.  You may be interested to know that we are rated as one of the best elementary schools in the state. According to Colorado School Grades, Longfellow is 70th out of 998 schools.  We believe that a large part of our success is due to the involvement of community members such as yourself and we are happy that you’ve taken a special interest in our students, and grateful in advance for your volunteer support. 

To introduce you to your new role, we will hold periodic Volunteer Orientation meeting to provide an overview of school policies and procedures, as well as address any individual questions you may have regarding your responsibilities.  Light refreshments will be served.

Commonly asked questions include:

  1. When and where do I show up?
  2. What policies and procedures should I be most familiar with as a volunteer?
  3. Who keeps track of the volunteer schedule and assignment(s)?
  4. How do I go about requesting a change in responsibilities?
  5. Can I start a new special interest group that meets before or after school?
  6. Are there any meetings I need to attend once I start volunteering?

We require that all new volunteers attend an orientation meeting prior to starting at Longfellow. Please contact our Main Office at (719) 530-5260 for information.  The Main Office staff can also provide general information such as school hours, classroom schedules, meeting dates and volunteer assignments.  If your question cannot be answered immediately, someone from Longfellow will get back to you with a response as soon as possible.

Again, thank you for volunteering to work here at Longfellow.  We look forward to having you join our “caring community” in which staff work collaboratively to provide focused, appropriately paced learning for their students.  Parents and community members are always encouraged to visit our classrooms, but volunteers such as you are also welcomed as valued colleagues.
