2014-2015 Volunteer Application
Click Here After June 15th
New/renewed volunteer application will be ready for the 2014-2015 after June 15th.
Remember you MUST fill out or renew your online application every year. The first of every school year is very busy , so fill out your application as soon as possible. If you are not sure that you will volunteer, go ahead and fill out form. This way your approval will be on file if the need arises. As grades start planning field trips the volunteer site gets hit with high volume again, so it may take a few days longer to be approved. Don't miss out, apply now!
Simply go to https://volunteer.leanderisd.org/ and enter the information as prompted. Please remember, this must be done every year, so even if you volunteered last year, LISD requires that you log in and verify your information again. You will receive an email from this site saying "you are approved to volunteer at Giddens Elementary" telling you info about the site and how to get a name tag. Please bring in your name badge and your ID and I will print you a picture ID tag. All visitors, including approved volunteers must wear a photo badge while on campus.
The Texas Department of Agriculture has some guidelines regarding food at school. Please remember...birthday treats ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE CAFETERIA. If you would like to bring a birthday treat for your students birthday, you must first contact their teacher and arrange a time.

Who are WATCH D.O.G.S.
(Dads Of Great Students)?
WATCH D.O.G.S. are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer for at least one day each year at an official WATCH D.O.G.S. school. During the day, WATCH D.O.G.S. may read and work on flash cards with kids, play at recess, eat lunch with their child, watch the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow, mentor students, and any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their child(ren), but other students as well. Their mere presence offers additional security at the school during the day! On the day of their participation, the participants are given a brief review of their involvement and they wear an official WATCH D.O.G.S. Across America® t-shirt or vest identifying them as WATCH D.O.G.S.
We are looking for a Top D.O.G. coordinator this year. If you are interested please contact Mrs. Beach our assistant principal. 512- 570-5600 or email email@example.com
