Classroom Volunteers

Our students at Gant succeed due to everyone in our community working together.  Parents are a critical piece of this partnership and we seek to involve YOU in many different ways!  We understand many of you are also very busy in your professional lives, which may make volunteering difficult, but involvement can come in many forms.  If you have an idea or seek to understand elements of our school, please feel free to come in to the school office, call on the phone, or send an email.  We will do our best to contact you within 48 hours.  Our school telephone number is (562) 430-3384.

VIPS Program

We encourage parents to be involved in the education of their children. Parents may arrange volunteer opportunities with the teacher once their Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) application has been approved.
Applications to volunteer must be completed, submitted and approved prior to volunteering in classrooms or on fieldtrips.
Items required:

  • Completed VIPS application
  • Current and clear TB test
  • Confidentiality statement
  • Current picture identification with a current and matching residential address

Completed applications are submitted to the District Office for processing. Processing typically takes 3 - 6 weeks.
