Volunteering at Lily B is a great way to get to know other parents, students, teachers AND help our school be the best it can be. To get started:

First, click here to tell us how you would like to help. There will always be sign up sheets on this website, but it is great if we have a list of parents who are willing to help when help is needed. Then, PLEASE complete a background check online and turn it into the office. This is required of all people volunteering for the school. Below there is also a place for you to enter the hours you volunteer.

Please sign in as a volunteer on the computer in the office before starting your volunteer activity and sign out as you are leaving.

Playground and Lunchroom (PAL) Duty

In a typical year, volunteers sign up to help our kindergartners in the lunchroom and at the beginning of their recess time. This is a wonderful way to get to know your child's classmates AND help the school.

Volunteers assist the students by opening containers, getting things such as spoons, napkins and straws (located where the children can buy their lunch), and helping them get their things together when it is time to go.

Help in our Library!

Sign up here to help Mrs. Bradshaw in our Library. The days and times each class visits are shown, so you can sign up when your child may be visiting the Library. Possible duties will be re shelving books, helping the students choose books, and checking books in or out.

Please include your name, contact number, and e-mail address when signing up as library times occasionally change. Library Schedule

Secret Pals

"Secret Pals" provides a great opportunity for us to express our gratitude to the teachers and staff members who make Lily B. Clayton such a wonderful school. Through this program, each volunteer is matched with a "Secret Pal" to whom they periodically deliver a small token of appreciation. Volunteers will be asked to provide their pals with a token of appreciation 3 times per year. I will send reminder of the suggested dates to give a gift, but these include: September (Welcome Back), January/February (New Year/Valentine's Day), May (end of year). The suggested limit is $20-25 per gift. Additionally, if you would like, you could deliver a small token or simple card on their birthday. Each person's birthday as well as list of favorite restaurants, stores, etc. is on the Secret Pal form you will receive. Our staff and teachers love this program and I hope you will keep it going strong! If you are interested, please email me at pwdenney@yahoo.com and let me know your top three choices.

Teacher Appreciation

Once a month, volunteers provide lunch for Lily B. Clayton staff members to show how much we appreciate all their hard work.

  • Sign ups and reminders will be posted on the Lily B Clayton Family Facebook page at the beginning of the month.

  • Don’t have time to cook or shop? Leave it to Emily and donate $10 to the PTA mailbox (leave in an envelope with her name on it).

  • Please be sure and note the number of servings indicated when signing up…we don’t want to run out of food for our hard working teachers and staff.

  • Any questions? E-mail or call Paul Denney (pwdenney@yahoo.com; 469-644-5862).

Thank you for your help in showing our teachers and staff how much we appreciate all they do for our kids! Paul Denney (pwdenney@yahoo.com; 469-644-5862)
