Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are a vital part of Lyon Elementary School and PTA!

Whether you work full time, part time, are a stay-at-home parent/grandparent, or retired, there is a volunteer opportunity for you! Here are some ways that you can volunteer your time:
  • Organize Staff Appreciation
  • Help at the Roar Store held monthly for students to redeem Lyon Bucks
  • Assist with Snack Shack (held every Friday, weather permitting)
  • Help with Book Fair (held twice a year)
  • School beautification (i.e. Spring Spruce Up Day, fill bird feeders, weed or plant a garden)
  • Chaperone a Field Trip
  • Mentor a child through the SOAR program
  • Volunteer in the classroom
  • Help with Smoothie Day
  • Help with classroom or PTA tasks from home

We challenge each and every one of our parents and grandparents to volunteer at least one day at Lyon Elementary each school quarter.

Check your child's binder daily and this website regularly to see what volunteer opportunities are available. If you have questions or want to sign up to help, contact us!

Together we can make a great school awesome!


  Can you volunteer some time once a month to help with our Roar Store?  Students receive Lyon Bucks for good behavior.  Once a month they can spend their Lyon Bucks for fun items.  We need at least 6 adults to assist to help it run smoothly.  The dates for 2017-2018 Roar Store are September 28, October 26, November 30,  January 25, February 22, March 22,  and April 26.  The Roar Store operates from 9am - 3:00pm on these dates.  If you can help all day or just a few hours, we would love to have you!

Snack Shack volunteers needed!  Snack Shack is a weekly snack sale that occurs during the after lunch recess for K - 3rd grades.  We hold Snack Shack almost every Friday.  Volunteers would be asked to help from 11 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  If you are interested in helping with this event every Friday, or on any Friday that you might be available during the school year, please send us an email with your name and contact information.  Our Volunteer chairperson will call you with more details.
