Get Involved


Volunteer at TOPS! We need you!

Volunteers are the reason TOPS has so many fantastic programs, activities and strong classroom support! Volunteering helps create a wonderful, tight-knit community for our kids and is a great way to get to know the families, teachers and staff at TOPS. We need volunteers of all kinds – from people who are willing to lead big events to people who want to take on support roles, people who want to do small projects at home to people who want to show up the day of and lend a hand.

How to Volunteer at TOPS

All volunteer applications are done online. Please go to the Seattle Schools main Volunteer webpage for more information how to submit your application. Friends of TOPS will cover any background check fees for families recently relocated from out-of-state. Email for assistance.

Thank you!

If you need any ideas on where TOPS could use a lending hand, please contact the main office or our Volunteer Coordinators. Whether it’s the Fall Fundraiser, Taste of TOPS, or the Auction – there are these and many more chances to contribute your services. Some are: daily recess and lunch help (this is critical), Room Reps, tutors, field trip coordinators, grant-writing folks, class or grade book order coordinators, and of course, help in the classroom.

Get to know the school and the staff, get to know your children’s classmates, make a difference.

Thank you for supporting TOPS!
