There are endless opportunities to volunteer at Key no matter how much (or little) you want to be involved.  There are plenty of opportunities that fit into any schedule.  If you are interested in any of the following committees please contact the nominating committee chairperson, Maria Garcia, at jiog2424@comcast.net or either of the PTO’s Co-Presidents, Jim Mello (the.mello.five@gmail.com), or Tricia Duncan (triduncan05@gmail.com).

MORNING DROP-OFF Start your day off with some fun!  Help ensure the safety of our students and keep curb drop-off as an option in the mornings.  It’s easy, and surprisingly fun to greet the kids and keep them safe from 8:35am to 8:55am.  Look out for the Sign-Up in NW@Key.

BOOK FAIR Held in May, the book fair requires the help of volunteers to set-up, to work check-out, and to help the children with their book selections.

BULK SUPPLIES Volunteers needed to support school-side bulk supply committee.  This unique program means that parents are not tasked with long lists of needed school supplies before each school year.  Opportunities include assisting with coordinating teachers’ lists, online and in-store purchases at area retailers, on site supply distribution to individual classrooms and more.

CHRISTMAS TREE SALE  Your help is needed the first weekend in December- loading trees onto cars, being cahiers and bringing holiday cheer to the neighborhood.

COMMUNITY SERVICE  Get involved in school-wide projects and fundraisers designed to instill a sense of community service in our children.

DIRECTORY Help compile, design, print and distribute the school directory and handbook.

FILLMORE The Fillmore Committee nurtures our collaboration with Fillmore Arts Center by facilitating communication between the schools, conducting course-feedback surveys, and developing relationships at Fillmore.

GREEN TEAM Environmentally conscious?  Join this crowd in helping the school maintain its garden and sell Key-grown produce at our Farmer’s Market, promote Waste-Free Wednesdays, work with our school and students to adopt greener practices, impart that commitment to our kids and more.

HARDY FOCUS GROUP  This group helps make Hardy Middle School, our only guaranteed middle school option, a school of choice for the Key community.  The group meets with parents from Hardy’s other feeder schools, Hardy and DCPS officials, and other stakeholders.

GROUNDS One weekend day each fall and spring we join together to help spruce up school grounds.  Volunteers help to keep our grounds neat and clean.
