Volunteer at Polk

  • We appreciate your interest in volunteering at our school! Volunteers are a vital part of our school community and we welcome your contributions. 

    To help ensure students' safety, all prospective volunteers must complete a volunteer verification process. ACPS uses the KeepnTrack screening system to screen all visitors/volunteers including parents, PTA members, community members and vendors.

    Visit the ACPS website to learn more about how to complete the volunteer application process.

  • Here are some of the ways you can volunteer at our school:

    Book Buddies is a wonderful program that matches students one-on-one with a tutor. Volunteers tutor first grader students in the area of reading. Lesson plans are provided and materials are targeted to your child's reading needs. Tutoring sessions are provided two times a week for 30 minutes each. The program runs from the fall until the end of May. If you would like to volunteer to be a Book Buddy please apply through the Alexandria Tutoring Consortium.

    You can also volunteer for various events through the Polk PTA.
