We are so glad that you are interested in participating as a volunteer at Seventh District Elementary School!


Become a Volunteer

 Use the following link Baltimore County Public School Volunteer to fill out an application and complete the online volunteer orientation. You will be provided with a certificate once you successfully complete the training.

Once your training is completed, you may send your application and the certificate to the 7DE Office. Volunteers may provide hard copies or the documents may be emailed. Both documents must be submitted at the same time to be accepted and reviewed by the school staff .  Please provide them to Diane Vyskocil, Office Secretary. Seventh District Elementary School, 20300 York Road, Parkton, MD 21120; 410-887-1900.


Volunteer Room

We invite volunteers to help with these essential Grade K-5 projects. Use the following link to sign up, but please know “drop-in” volunteers are also always welcome.  For 2017-18 school year, the volunteer room is located in the SouthEast corner of the school (4th grade area) in a room tucked between Mrs. Porter’s and Ms. Murphy’s classrooms.


This sign-up link will be refreshed on a monthly basis. Any time you offer is greatly appreciated.  Sign in on the green volunteer sheet in the office when you check in and receive your ID tag and your name will automatically be entered into a monthly raffle for various prizes.  Additionally, all volunteers must complete the annual volunteer training per BCPS.



Library volunteers assist students in finding books or helping them to check out.  They also organize and shelve books. Our new librarian, Mr. Knox, would love your help!  Drop in to help out at any time, or use our link below to plan your visit.  Please contact Sarah Martin at [email protected] with any questions you might have.


Math Initiative

In an effort to offer more opportunities for Parents and Extended Family Members to volunteer in the classroom and work with Seventh District Students, the Teachers and Administrators have created grade specific Math Initiatives.  These Initiatives are designed to serve as an extension of classroom activities and offer additional reinforcement and practice with basic math concepts.  

This new volunteer opportunity will be offered twice a week. Each session will last approximately 30 minutes. Volunteers will work one-on-one or with small groups on basic math including addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.  All activities, areas of focus and student selections will be determined by teachers. Instructions and materials will be provided to volunteers onsite. 

During the 2016-2017 School Year, the Second Grade Team participated in a similar program, piloting this experience.  There was overwhelming positive feedback from volunteers, students and teachers about the experience. Please consider being a part of this exciting opportunity.

As a reminder, all volunteers must complete the required BCPS training available on: Community BCPS and obtain a visitor badge upon entering the building.  Please note, you are encouraged to sign-up for multiple spots if so desired.  Additionally, for those with multiple children at Seventh District, feel free to volunteer in multiple grades.

Special Events

Seventh District Elementary’s PTA supports many special events throughout the school year and we could not pull them off without YOU!

There are several committees that meet throughout the year to manage important PTO events and responsibilities. We know 7DE’s parents have a breadth of skills and experience, and we’d love to put them to work for our kids!

Please email the committee chair of your choice to learn more!
