Volunteer Opportunities


Classroom Volunteers

All chaperones and volunteers are required to complete a criminal background check to ensure the safety of all of our students.  If you are interested in helping as a volunteer or chaperone in the Wausau School District, please notify your child's teacher or contact the school office at 715-261-0795 and request the appropriate forms.

Field Trips

Please notify your child's teacher if you are interested in being a chaperone during an upcoming field trip.


All guides welcome parents who can help during the morning work time from 8:15 - 11:00.  Duties include reading with individual students, responding to student's questions about their work, and helping students to stay focused.  No special training is required.  The guides will be happy to show you how to help students work with the materials.  Please contact your child's teacher if you would like to help.


Maria's Kitchen


Do you like to cook? We are always looking for parents who can help with the Maria's Kitchen program. You can help by guiding a very small group of students through the process of preparing a meal for their class. (Younger students often prepare a snack for their class instead of a full meal.)

Most of our students have done this before, and they look forward to working in our kitchen in room 155. If you would like to help, please let your child's teacher know. We will contact specific parents for help when it is their child's turn to prepare a meal.


Family VOLUNTEERS are always welcome at our school.  If you have knowledge, skills or talents you'd like to share, please let us know!   Check in at the main office when you arrive and pick up a volunteer badge.
