Welcome to the Volunteer Program

  • Shakopee Public Schools welcome volunteers of all ages who want to share their talents, skills and resources to help support students, teachers, and school programs. Volunteers play an important role in our efforts to ensure academic success for every student. Every day parents, grandparents, community and business members bring fresh perspectives and enthusiasm to our schools while enriching the learning experience of our students. Volunteers have discovered that spending time and sharing talents with students is an energizing and worthwhile experience. Whether you have an hour a day, a week or month, we have students, classrooms, and schools that can use your help.
    Some of the ways you can share your skills and contribute are:
    • Read to students or listen to them read
    • Help an English Language learner by working on basic skills or classroom activities
    • Work one-on-one or in small groups helping students master basic skills in math, reading or writing
    • Help student explore the world of work by participating in a career fair or hosting a job shadow experience
    • Visit a classroom as a resource speaker and add first-hand experience by sharing your career, travel or ethnic heritage
    • Assist with classroom and school activities
    • Assist with after school programs
    • Assist office or media center staff
    • Work behind the scenes on school projects and events
    • Serve on a school or district-wide committees and councils
