Volunteering at Miwok Village Elementary School
We are grateful that so many of our families are looking forward to volunteering on campus and chaperoning field trips. While volunteering is fun and rewarding, it is also a responsibility. We ask that those wishing to volunteer review the Elk Grove Unified School District Volunteer Guidelines. Once you have reviewed the guidelines, if you still wish to volunteer please come into the office and complete the Volunteer Request Form to begin the process. If you previously completed this form online your request has been processed and you should have received an email from firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will need a signed Internal Volunteer Request Form AND a valid ID to bring to your fingerprinting appointment at the District Office. Fingerprints are good for five years before needing to be renewed. If you have been fingerprinted recently at another EGUSD site, you will still need to complete the Internal Volunteer Request Form at Miwok Village in order to be cleared for volunteering.
Miwok Village Elementary has had the privilege of being able to raise funds through our site and the PTA via various opportunities. For example, the school site raises money via spirit wear, APEX, and Sprinkles on Top Fundraising. All monies raised support student field trip scholarships, art supplies, grade level needs, recess & yard supplies, PE & Technology resources, and other student-related needs that are not covered by district funding. Our PTA hosts our annual Spring Fest, Halloween and Valentine Grams, and other amazing opportunities.
Parking and Traffic Updates
Safety is our top priority,therefore we ask that all students and guardians exercise extreme caution when walking or driving around our school.
Please follow all traffic laws as posted; EGPD is ticketing violators. For concerns regarding traffic and other drivers, please contact the EGPD non emergency line.
