In-Classroom Volunteers

Want to be a parent volunteer at Paxson School?

While the PTA is already reaching out with volunteers opportunities for events, the school also has in-class opportunities.  Some volunteering requires a background check (if you plan to help kids individually). Non-PTA volunteer opportunities at Paxson are through the MCPS Volunteer Portal.  This new system provides us with a single platform for advertising volunteer opportunities in the school and in individual classrooms.
