Welcome volunteers!

Last Modified: Mar 7, 2017 @ 9:14 pm

As we all know, getting involved in your child’s education has a profound effect on their life!  

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


So where do you start?

First, we need you to follow the steps to become a Baltimore County Public County Volunteer.

This involves 1) filling out an application and 2) taking the online volunteer orientation.  You will be provided with a certificate once you successfully complete the training.  

Please then bring your application and the certificate to the school. 

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 Katherine Taylor, Office Secretary.  Seventh District Elementary School, 20300 York Road, Parkton, MD 21120; 410-887-1902.  Ktaylor13@bcps.org  Hours:   Monday – Friday  8:00 am – 4:00 pm



So now where do you want to volunteer?

Are you a whiz at networking?  Love graphic design?  Passionate about lists or spreadsheets?  Want to contribute to your child’s education by helping their teachers?

Whatever your passion, we’ve got a place for you!  For any questions regarding volunteering, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Nicole Smith at nicolebsmith80@yahoo.com.

NEW!  2nd Grade is looking for Math Tutors!

Please know, it is not necessary that you have a child in  2nd Grade in order to volunteer.  Anyone interested in tutoring Math who has completed BCPS Volunteer Training can participate.  

Activities may include counting money, telling time or reviewing fast facts.

Volunteer Room:  

On behalf of the newly reinstated Volunteer Initiative, we would like to thank those who donated their time and efforts in January.  The following link contains February time slots for the ongoing projects to assist teachers with copying, cutting, laminating and/or other special instructions for Grade 1-5.  As a reminder, the newly organized and fully stocked Volunteer Room (with adult-size tables and chairs) is located directly across from the Nurse’s Office.  

We invite volunteers to help with these essential Grade 1-5 projects.  Use the following link to sign up, but please know “drop-in” volunteers are also always welcome.  


This sign-up link will be refreshed on a monthly basis.  Any time you offer is greatly appreciated and your service will automatically enter your name into a monthly raffle for various prizes – just be sure to sign in on the green volunteer sheet in the office when you check in and receive your ID tag.  Additionally, make sure you have completed your annual volunteer training per BCPS.  


Organizing and shelving books, helping students as needed.  Our new librarian would love to have you!  You can also drop in to help out at any time, or use our Sign Up Genius to plan your day.  Please contact Betsi Cogan at  betsicogan@comcast.net with any questions you might have.

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!
