Volunteer Opportunities

What’s happening at ISL this year and how can I get involved?  We’re glad you asked!  There are a variety of fund-raising events and community activities that occur during the school year.  The following list is intended to help you learn about some of these events and activities as well as the specific committees and how they support the International School of Louisiana.

 

ANNUAL YEARBOOK 

This committee assembles an annual yearbook for the entire ISL Jefferson Campus community and it’s simply amazing!!!  Volunteers are needed to attend school functions, take pictures and then submit their photos for publication.  They also need people to help with sales and processing orders at the end of the school year.

GROCERY REWARDS

ISL families can support this committee by collecting Coke Bottle Tops, Box Tops for Education, Community Coffee UPC bar codes and Campbell’s labels. These items are redeemable for cash or merchandise that supports ISL. Twice a year the class with the highest amount of combined items wins a class party so make sure you label your submissions with both your child and teacher’s name.

LANDSCAPING 

Committee members spread mulch, trim bushes, and weed flowerbeds.  They also pick-up trash, plant and care for classroom nature projects as they are developed.  It’s ongoing, but designated “landscaping days” are sometimes scheduled to accommodate special projects.

UNIFORM SWAP/ LOST AND FOUND

Started this year by an ISL parent, this committee collects gently used uniforms, cleans them and makes them available at ISL events for parents to shop at very low prices and/or swap. Volunteers are needed to donate used uniforms as well as to put out uniforms at ISL functions. This is truly a “green” program, and an excellent opportunity to meet parents.

ROOM PARENTS

Being a room parent is an excellent opportunity to work with your child’s teacher as well as meet the other parents in the class.  The room parent assists the teacher as needed and supports field trips, projects, etc. both initially, at the start of the school year, and then periodically, throughout the year. The room parent spearheads teacher appreciation efforts and  acts as the volunteer coordinator for the teacher.  This is a great volunteering opportunity for a full-time working parent as much of it could be done by email and telephone.

TEACHER/STAFF APPRECIATION 

If you like to cook or you own a restaurant, this is the committee for you! Volunteers plan menus, prepare food and set up tables overflowing with delicious food & drinks for our ISL teachers and support staff.  Committee Co-Chairs and volunteers are needed.

Committee Chair: OPEN
