Clinic Volunteers

Clinic Volunteers, under the direction of the school nurse are needed for student traffic flow to and from the screening area.  Volunteers may also be asked to record results of the vision and hearing tests as directed by the school nurse and/or the certified screeners. 

School nurses organize the vision and hearing screenings and supervise the volunteers.

When vision or hearing problems are noted, volunteers know that students’ lives will be better because of their service for young learners.

Library Volunteers

Working under the supervision of a school librarian, volunteers assist in operating an important learning center on each campus. Volunteers have the opportunity to assist with reading to students, supervising makerspace activities, assisting in the circulation process, setting up displays, and shelving books.

When volunteers assist in a school library, librarians have more time to use their professional training to work with students and teachers.

Music Appreciation

The Klein ISD Music Appreciation Volunteer Program’s objective is to provide through volunteers and invited guest performers, an enrichment program in music appreciation for the elementary school children of the district, so that students may increase their understanding of and love for music. Any interested volunteer may inquire and participate. Many campuses have a music appreciation volunteer coordinator to help organize the local school program. There is also a volunteer district music coordinator who works to help coordinate the various school programs.

The Klein Music Appreciation Program through volunteers, recruited within each school, offers grade-appropriate programs which introduce the instruments of the orchestra. Also offered is a Pre-K–3rd Grade forty-five-minute puppet show “The Musical Kid” which, with the assistance of an enthusiastic young puppet, introduces the families and instruments of the orchestra to the students. This is an upbeat puppet presentation requiring a narrating volunteer, volunteers for six puppets and someone to run the CD player. The same script is available in Spanish. There is also a Spanish CD which contains the entire script already preformed; volunteers are needed to work the puppets, and someone to run the CD player.

Volunteer Art

Volunteers who participate in the art appreciation program provide enrichment for students to increase personal awareness and build feelings of competence and self-worth. Students view the art created by themselves and others in ways that promote the "value" of art as an important part of society.

The Art in Our Lives program reflects the interests and talents of each school’s volunteers and members of the community.

Mini-museums, sets of art prints and hands-on activities, allow students to learn about various periods of art in a discovery session format.

Frequently Asked Questions

Since 1970 when the KISD Volunteer Program was created, volunteers have enhanced the schools by sharing their talents and resources.

What do volunteers do?

In the classrooms, volunteers serve as tutors, make special presentations, and read to students. In the school clinics, libraries, and office areas, volunteers provide clerical assistance. At the Wunderlich Farm complex, volunteers serve as docents who share our community’s history with students.

When do volunteers help?

Schools work with volunteers to match volunteers’ skills, interests, and time to school projects. Most volunteers serve during the school day. Some take-home projects to complete at their leisure.

Where do volunteers help?

Volunteers serve in all KISD schools and at the Wunderlich Farm complex. Typically, parents and grandparents serve where their children and grandchildren attend school. Business and community members are matched with schools that need their support.

  • Volunteers are role models for students in behavior, speech, and dress.

  • When persons are on duty as volunteers, the district requests that they dress in conformity with the teachers’ dress code.

  • Volunteers will check in at the front desk
    upon arrival at the school. This record allows the school to know who is in the building
