Volunteer

Lend your time & talents

Lexington appreciates its parent volunteers! Parents are invited to volunteer their time in a variety of areas: Home and School Club positions and committees (fundraising, community events, student and parent support), classroom helpers, art helpers, library helper, and many one-off events. To increase school safety, all parents are asked to sign in in the office when helping in their child's classroom or with a school-wide function. Parents are also asked to wear a visitor's badge designating that they are a helper on campus. 

* To volunteer you will need to complete the volunteer application here.
