Volunteering & Donations

  • Shakopee Public Schools welcomes volunteers of all ages who want to share their talents, skills, time and resources to help support our teachers, students and programs.  Volunteers play an important role in the success of our students.  Our students and staff gain insight and fresh perspectives from volunteers.

    • Work with a teacher on classroom prep work (sorting, stapling, cutting, etc.)
    • Serve on the PTO or help with a PTO event
    • Junior Achievement
    • Workroom (laminating, copies, cutting, stapling, etc)
    • Take home projects
    • Picture days
    • Field trips
    • Book fairs
    • Classroom parties
    • Business partnerships
    • District committees

    All volunteers working in a building or with students or staff must first complete an application and go through a background check.
