Parent volunteers at the Denver Language School help make events happen, raise funds, build community, and support the teachers and students. This volunteering serves as one of the key drivers of the overall success of the school. Beyond helping all of the kids at DLS, volunteering is a fantastic way to get involved in the DLS community. Each family is strongly encouraged to volunteer their time and talents, either individually or as part of a committee. There are a variety of opportunities available to fit most schedules. All DLS families are asked to volunteer 15 hours each school year.

Joining the PTA counts as one hour - get started here!

Current Volunteer Needs

PTA Projects that currently need volunteers are:

  • Night Market Coordinators for Fall 2018. We are seeking new volunteers to help organize and coordinate our 2018 Night Market coming this Fall. Whatever your skill set, we can use it! Email Amanda at fundraising@dlspta.org to get involved and/or to get more information.  

  • Paint Donations. Caleb and his technical theatre class need paint to work on their sets for Beauty and the Beast Jr. If you have any kind of paint lying around - craft paint preferred, but house paint acceptable - please drop it off at the East Campus with Caleb or at the West Campus with Jessica.

  • Jump Rope for Heart. We need two parent volunteers for the Jump Rope for Heart Fundraiser every morning from 7:30 a.m. to 8:10 a.m. through April 13th, with the exception of Spring Break week. Parents will help pass out prizes and encourage students to keep going. Jump Rope for Heart is a fundraiser put on by the American Heart Association to teach students heart healthy skills and raise money for PE equipment at their school. Please sign-up here: http://signup.com/go/Xzrocts.

  • Gilpin Garden Clean-Up Last Saturdays in April. Save the last Saturdays in April, April 21 and April 28 for a garden clean-up at Gilpin in conjunction with additional walking tours. More information coming soon.
