Volunteer at IMS!

 

Even with COVID-19, volunteers are appreciated and wanted at IMS!

With COVID-19, there will be no volunteers physically at the school at this time. However, our hope is that we can get back to volunteering soon - or may have virtual volunteer opportunities! All volunteers in Issaquah Schools are required to complete the ANNUAL Volunteer Application for 2020-21 school year. Click here for instructions and allow one week to process prior to any volunteer time (note: at this time, the District is NOT processing any volunteer requests. Please check the school and PTSA Enews for updates as we have them).

We have a complete list of volunteer opportunities. Click here to see the list. Once you add your name to any of the events or programs, you will be contacted by the chairperson/s to sign up for specific time slots or to provide certain items. You can remove yourself from any list at any time by going to, My Account.

Programs or events that are currently in need of volunteers for specific time slots or to bring in certain items are always available here on our home page. Questions? Contact Us!
