Volunteering

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:

  • Feb 22 - Class Picture Day - Help the photographer take great class pictures. Sign up here.

  • Feb 24 - Fiesta Hispánica - Help us pull off a fabulous event! Mandarin Parents - please consider helping during the show to enable our Spanish Parents to focus on the show; we had several Spanish parents volunteer at Chinese New Year. Sign up here.
     
  • Feb 27-Mar 3 - East Campus - Book Fair - Please help us sell books at our book fair. Sign up here.

  • East Campus Lunch Room Helpers - The kids at East Campus need some further instruction on the art of disposing their lunch. We could use a volunteer for each lunch shift to help kids compost, recycle, and throw away - and learn a little about their impact to the Earth. It is also a great way to see your kid during the school day! Sign up here. 

  • Ongoing:  EAST Science Room Supply Clean Up - The middle school science teacher needs ongoing help keeping the science room supplies in order. This is a task that will occur weekly. We'd love volunteers that could help with this on a regular basis. The work can be done at home - it just requires picking up the dirty supplies at East and returning them the next morning. Sign up here.

  • We need volunteers for general help at both campuses. Stay tuned for sign-up opportunities, visit the Volunteering page for more information, or please email volunteers@dlspta.org.
