Be a Volunteer



Volunteering at SOEC is a rewarding experience!  No matter what your interests or expertise, your presence alone will provide a great help as well as show your kids how much you care.   With so many wonderful opportunities at our fundraisers and within our school, we are sure there is something out there for everyone.


Here are some ways you can volunteer and make a difference:
  • SOPA Volunteers -  With the funds raised through our Tiger Fund and at SOPA's fundraisers, we are able to provide our students with the following enrichment programs  – media lab, science lab, music, art, dance, robotics and the garden ranger. For more information on our fundraising events and volunteering, please use this form:     SOPA Volunteer Interest Form
  • Room Parent- If you are interested in being a Room Parent for your child’s classroom, contact Rina Rapoport-Bridges or Lisa Mitchell on ParentSquare
  • Paws and Go SOEC implements a school valet drop off program. Each classroom is assigned Paws and Go Curbside Valet duties one to two weeks per school year. ANY parent CAN sign up to volunteer even if it’s not your class’s turn.  Your Room Parents will send out sign ups.
  • Volunteer in your child’s classroom - Talk with your child’s teacher to see how and when you can best help out in the classroom. Volunteers can work in the classroom or on select projects at home.  All in-classroom volunteers need to complete Tier III Volunteer Clearance.

*Volunteers that wish to work in the classroom or attend field trips, must complete all Tier III Requirements on LAUSD's Volunteer Application, Part A (Attachment A) online at: LAUSD Volunteer Home Page.  Print out a hard copy of the completed Volunteer Application and Volunteer Commitment Form and submit to the main office.
