Volunteer Projects

Volunteer Projects are ways for site and community organizations to enrich our
school facilities for students without paid labor.

Maintenance, Operations, and Facilities encourages participation in Volunteer Projects. Volunteer Projects can expand your parent network, build new friendships and enhance social skills.

Examples of a volunteer project are:

  • Community Service/Beautification Day – campus cleanup
  • Murals/Stencils/Tile Projects
  • Repainting of US Maps
  • Rejuvenation of Butterfly/ Science/ School Garden
  • Eagle Scout Projects

Starting a project without prior approval can create potential problems and fees that your site would be accountable for. Please contact Maintenance, Operations, and Facilities at (925) 825-7440, ext. 3804 if you have any questions regarding a Volunteer Project or the process.
