There are many opportunities to volunteer at Pima, to send an email inquiry regarding volunteer opportunities, please use our Email Us form.

Please contact us to find out how you can help out.

Volunteering Requirements

Parent Volunteers on campus are now asked to fill out a Volunteer and/or Parent Chaperone Application. After completing the online application, please call Angelica Amaya at (480) 484-2818 with the 5 digit confirmation number received.

Note: Returning volunteers need to fill out a Volunteer Approval Returning form each year. Please ask for the form in the front office.
After you submit a form, it will be on file for the entire school year. If you decide to volunteer for an activity such as chaperoning a field trip, you can then continue with a background check at that time and do not have to fill out the application again.
The District has defined requirements for volunteers and independent contractors. For more information, please download the Volunteers and Independent Contractors requirements.
Thank you for your commitment and dedication to Pima Elementary.

District Guidelines for Volunteers

      1. Parents volunteering ONLY in their own child’s classrooms need to be approved at the site level by the teacher and the principal. No paperwork is necessary. Please do remind volunteers to always sign in at the office and take the appropriate identification for visitors.
      2. Parents who are volunteering in any of the following capacities need to fill out the district volunteer application form that includes permission to run a background check:
        • In any classroom other than their own child’s, including the cafeteria
        • Working with student information/ records
        • Chaperoning field trips where the volunteer is not constantly in the line of sight of a teacher
        • Chaperoning overnight field trips
