August classroom moves

Seeking parent volunteers! The first week of classroom moves will be August 8-12. We'll be prioritizing getting our Kindergarten teachers in their new rooms before Jump Start. The remaining moves will be conducted August 22-26. Looking for volunteers that want to help out, bring any helpful moving tools like hand trucks, and get to work. We'll be moving boxes and small pieces of furniture from one classroom to another. Being a volunteer over summer is an awesome way to get to know our beautiful school building! Volunteers can come for the whole moving week, or any number of days. It will be a community effort to get our school clean and ready for next school year! 

Please email Dr. Zisko if you can volunteer in August: nlzisko@seattleschools.org

Small student groups

Would you like to come and volunteer on campus? Would you like to work with a small group of students? B.F. Day teachers welcome parent volunteers into their classrooms for small group support. Volunteers need to complete the volunteer orientation through the district and provide proof of vaccination. If interested, please contact your child’s teacher directly and notify the front office of when you intend to volunteer.

Art Room

Are you artsy (or do you wish you were MORE artsy??)... Make your artistic dreams come true by volunteering in the B.F. Day art room. An extra set up of hands helping with project set-up and clean-up once a week would be soooo helpful.
Please reach out to Ms. Pierce, our fabulous art teacher, directly for details, at jmpierce@seattleschools.org.


Parent volunteers are greatly needed to help clean tables, deliver the food cart, and help with getting students back to class. You can join a class for a lunch period of 20 minutes or longer. We have 4 lunches per day. Please Sign up. Completed vaccines and a daily attestation will be needed to volunteer. Thank you! 


Library volunteers are needed to add a little love to our library. Please contact Ms. Siler, tcsiler1@seattleschools.org if you can volunteer. 


If you are a background checked volunteer and love recess, we’d love to have you come help/lead a game. Jump rope skilled? Kickball, basketball, soccer oriented? Flyball geared? Recess begins with our 1st group at 10:15 and ends at 12:50.
