Volunteer Opportunities

Teacher Lounge Grab-n-Go

Help Groveton staff by stocking their snack room. This is a gift that can keep on giving!

All year round, teachers need a quick grab-n-go snack they can use to boost their energy during the school day. Let's be generous and keep their lounge stocked with some goodies! Look for single serving packets, prepackaged goodies, and items that don't require utensils to eat or drink.

The school has a teacher lounge with a fridge, freezer, microwave, and k-cup coffee maker to utilize.


We're onto our last refill, #3, so please sign up and bring your items by the end of May! Thank you!!

Mr. DeBonis will use the funds in this eWallet to buy the books.

Lunch Monitor Volunteering

Help Groveton staff by watching students during their lunch time.

The school has worked to space out kids during lunch time, indoors, at least through February because of the cold weather. Each day some of the grades 3-6 classes eat in their own classroom, monitored by a staff person (or volunteer). That way the cafeteria isn't as crowded. The younger grades have more room in the cafeteria, and have been spaced out to 3 or even 4 tables per class, instead of the previous 2 tables per class.


Volunteers must be:

  1. Vaccinated,

  2. Wear a mask, and

  3. Wear school-appropriate attire.


Through May 27.. with warmer weather.. we need volunteers to help with our outdoor lunch area.

A big thank you to the Hybla Valley Home Depot for providing 15% discount on the Groveton PTA purchase of picnic tables to support outdoor dining! This discount allowed the PTA to purchase three additional tables, which provides outdoor lunch for 18 more kids!

Thanks also to the Virginia Hills Pool for the loan of 6 picnic tables! They will be returned before the pool opens for Memorial Day weekend.


!Ayude a los estudiantes de Groveton a respirar aire fresco durante el almuerzo! Los voluntarios deben estar vacunados, usar mascarilla y vestir apropiadamente para atender en la escuela.
