Volunteering at Milwaukee German Immersion School
All volunteers who spend more than 5 hours in the building a year are asked to do a background check for the safety of our students. Click here and you will be taken to MPS’ volunteer page. Select Milwaukee German Immersion School as your first choice.
Our volunteers help MGIS run smoothly and safely. Volunteering is a wonderful way to get to know other parents, MGIS teachers and staff and your child’s friends. School volunteers are organized either through the Parent Coordinator, the PTA, or in many cases, with your child’s teacher!
Family members of MGIS students are welcome to volunteer. This includes parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles. Community members are also welcome.
