We are so grateful for our parent volunteers! Your presence, participation, and enthusiasm are what makes these experiences so enriching, memorable, and fun for our Meadow Ponders! When volunteering at at Meadow Pond, please do the following:

  1. Volunteer Application - KLSD requires that all volunteers renew their volunteer application annually in order to volunteer in any of the KLSD schools. Click here to renew yours -- it's very quick.
  2. Location - go directly to the area where you are offering support and stay in that area.
  3. Photography - pictures should only be taken if a teacher or Meadow Pond administrator gives you the okay to do so.

Seeking K-2 parents for the After School Committee!

Help us continue to offer engaging after school classes for Meadow Pond kids. We have three open coordinator roles; each will work with after school vendors to coordinate on dates/details for the next (winter/spring) session and fill out required forms.

Open roles:

- Sports coordinator 

- Dance/music coordinator

-Art/STEM coordinator


Please reach out to Barbara at more information.
