    Volunteer Information

    Anyone wishing to volunteer at Discovery Elementary School must complete an online volunteer application.  Please note:  If you are planning on going on a field trip with your child - an application must be on file.  See information below under "Application to Volunteer".  

    After the application has been cleared, we welcome you to come and volunteer your time.  When you arrive on campus, please go to the front office to sign in on the computer.  After you have signed in, you will be required to show your driver's license or a photo ID.  You will then be given an ID badge.  Please wear this badge in a visible place while on campus.  Be sure to stop by the office to sign out and turn in your badge when you are leaving the campus.
