• Volunteering

    One thing that sets Discovery Lab School (DLS) apart is our level of family involvement in the school. Family involvement isn’t just encouraged here, it’s expected! Our teachers and support staff work hard to provide high-quality education for every child, but they cannot do the job without your support.

    Volunteering at DLS is not limited to helping in the classroom during the school day. We have MANY ways for you to be involved – and many of these tasks can be done at home. Along with inviting parents to get involved, we welcome grandparents, aunts, uncles, foster parents, guardians, neighbors and any other caring adults who want to come make a difference at Discovery Lab School.

    Please make a pledge to support our school by volunteering some of your time, energy, skills or talents to promote student education and enrichment at DLS. We’ve listed some suggestions here, but if you have other ideas, just let us know. If you have a question about a certain opportunity and there's no contact person listed, call the DLS office at 573-5400 and ask for a contact person.
