    Cafeteria Volunteers

    Volunteer Info:

    We need three to six volunteers to work from 10:40 – 12:20 each day to help manage the cafeteria with the growth of our student body.  The third, fourth and fifth graders do not require assistance.  Lunch periods begin at 10:55 so arriving at 10:40 will allow for preparation and updates from Mr. Ward.

    Volunteer Roles:

    1)      Assisting students in opening containers and packages.

    2)      Reminding students of sitting on benches until they ask for permission to move.

    3)      Cleaning and wiping off tables.

    4)      Not responsible for correcting or disciplining students. (Para or Amity role)

    5)      Not responsible for lining up students to depart cafeteria. (Para or Amity role)

    Volunteer Schedule:

    Ideally volunteers would commit to one day a week for a month or more at a time, for instance, “Tuesdays in October” for continuity.  All help is welcome, however, so whenever you are able to assist, THANK YOU!

    The Pre-K and Kindergarten teachers have requested that parents of these age students not volunteer until after the first quarter.  It is disruptive for the younger children to have their parents present until they have settled in to their new routines.


    Pre K (Kern & Kern)                                        10:55 – 11:20

    Second Spanish                 11:45-12:10

    Second French         11:55 – 12:20

    Third Grade 12:05-12:40

Hispanic Festival
  • Hispanic Festival - volunteer opportunity for French Families Only
    French Parents -

    The Festival Hispano is an annual tradition at Eisenhower International celebrated by our Spanish Immersion program and enjoyed by all EIS students.  After the evening performance, the children and their families will enjoy Pan Dulce in the cafeteria.  We need our French family volunteers to help with set up, serving and clean-up so our Spanish families can enjoy their evening. 

Friday Home & Back Folders
  • Home and Backs
    Change to this:  Home and Backs are the folders that go home weekly with your student.  These will be filled with important information from the school, registration forms for after school classes and sports, Run registrations, etc.  As the school grows, the job is getting bigger and the home and back chair can use as many extra sets of hands to help stuff the folders.  This is a great way to get in some hours weekly or just now and then. We meet in the PTA Room at 10am each Friday. Contact Debbie Bohling at
Class Photographers
  • Many classes are still looking for class photographers.
     This doesn't have to be a big job and it's the perfect job to share!  The class photographers help make sure we have representation of all classes for the yearbook. Photos of field trips, parties, hispanic festival/mardi gras, playground time, etc. are ideal.  If you're unable to attend each event, you can coordinate with other parents who will be there to make sure one of them is taking photos and help get them to  Yearbook Coordinator  Please let your Home Room Parents know if you are interested in helping out. The yearbook will publish a link to send these photos. Stay up to date with the E-blast and the school facebook page.
  • Library Helpers
    Volunteers are needed and welcomed any time of the day to assist with covering books, shelving, and any little odd jobs the librarians might need.  It is surprising how many books need shelving everyday.  The library is in critical need for volunteers between 8:30 to 9:00am. Each morning library carts need to go down the halls and collect returned books outside the classroom.  Stop by the library and let them know you are ready to help. 
  • Fiestivale

    Fiestivale is EIS only major fundraser for the year.  The event usually takes place in the spring, the date will be announced near the beginning of the school year. 

Book Fair
Life Lab
  • Life Lab
    The EIS PTA and parents have funded a new pollinator outdoor classroom, the Life Lab. Life Lab is located in the kinder play area along the First Grade classrooms. The space will allow for experiential learning including, but not limited to science, nature, and conservation.  Life Lab will serve as a weigh station for the threatened Monarch Butterfly and provide a safe habitat for other pollinators.
