How Can I Help?

Many people have asked how they can help at Grapeland. Listed below are some great opportunities, but if you have further questions please contact the school office for more information.

Join the PTA

Help our school by joining the PTA. Please visit the PTA page for details.

Be A Volunteer!

We're always looking for more volunteers. We are so grateful for the support of our volunteers! Volunteer opportunities are available with your child's classroom, with the PTA and with Grapeland in general. If you would like to volunteer, please contact your child's teacher, the PTA or the school office for details.

Please note our New District Policy and Volunteer Handbook.

The Etiwanda School District now has a district wide Parent Handbook. It is District Policy that "a volunteer serving in any capacity must sign the volunteer form provided in the district volunteer handbook."

Please sign the form in the Handbook and give it to the office staff.

Please take the time to read through the Handbook. It is full of information that all volunteers should know.

Remember to sign in and out and wear your name tag each time you volunteer.

Thanks in advance for your service to our students and our school. We appreciate our volunteers!

Support Our Fundraisers

The PTA has multiple fundraisers throughout the year. By participating in the fundraisers, your are helping our students and our school. The music program, shade structure in the playground and multiple activities would not be possible without your generous support. Please see the PTA webpage, or visit the Grapeland PTA Facebook page, for more information.

Family Night

Multiple times a year, Grapeland has Family Night at a local restaurant. The school receives a percentage of all sales during this specific date for both Dine-In and Take-Out orders. You will need to bring the Grapeland Family Night flyer with you and present it to your server when you order to ensure Grapeland gets a percentage of the sale. Flyers are sent home with your child as a reminder of the next Family Night. 

You can also purchase Script Gift Cards for Family Night and earn additional percentages from sales for our school. See the Script Gift Card Program below for information.

Scrip Gift Card Program

Take part in our Scrip Gift Card Program and help keep our library up-to-date. By purchasing gift cards from the school library, the library gets a percentage of the sale which fund the purchase of new library materials including books, AR quizzes, magazines, etc. Please see Mrs. Frydendall or Mrs. Claflin in the library to purchase the gift cards.

The Etiwanda School District Scrip Gift Card Program web site has more information including merchant list and scrip order form.

Toner Cartridges / Cell Phones
