Volunteering

We welcome volunteers  in our schools! Your involvement in your child’s education makes a big impact on their success, and our volunteers help our students achieve more.

Gladstone has a proud tradition of hundreds of parents and community members stepping up to help our students. They help in classrooms, chaperone field trips, lead after school clubs, staff events, support reading groups, and mentor students. We hope this year our volunteers will come back full force to support Gladstone kids!

Volunteer Training
Those who plan to volunteer inside John Wetten Elementary must first complete a brief
in-person training. However, field trip chaperones and volunteers at athletic events do not need the training.

Thank You for Your Patience
We ask for your patience as our school and district staff process new volunteer registration information. Due to the required steps involved, the process could take a number of days before volunteers receive approval.

We look forward to connecting with you this fall, and will communicate volunteer needs as they arise. If you have questions or want to schedule JWE volunteer training, please contact me at schmidtt@gladstone.k12.or.us or phone 503.656.6564, ext.265.

Thank you for supporting Gladstone students,

Theresa Schmidt, Volunteer Coordinator
