Volunteer at Grand Ridge! 

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Grand Ridge Elementary and with the PTSA!  Without you, many valuable programs would not exist. Your time is valuable, and we are grateful for any amount of time you are willing to give. There are many ways to get involved - some opportunities to volunteer happen during the school day, others are in the evening, and there are even ways to work from home.

If you are interested in volunteering with the PTSA, please see the current opportunities below. If you are interested in volunteering in your child's classroom, please contact your teacher or Room Parent. If you are interested in helping in the library, please contact our librarian, Mrs. Gekeler (gekelert@issaquah.wednet.edu).

IMPORTANT - Mandatory Online Volunteer Application Process
In order to volunteer anywhere in the Issaquah School District, an annual volunteer application needs to be submitted. If you have been approved before, you just need to update your application. The process may take 15-20 minutes to complete and includes a volunteer training slideshow and requires you to upload a copy/picture of your driver’s license. It can take up to 2 weeks to process, so don’t delay and do it now! https://issaquahvolunteers.hrmplus.net/
