Mustang Pride!

We have had such a FUN week!


We want to take this opportunity to thank our gracious volunteers! We are so thankful for our volunteers and their giving hearts. The time spent serving our students is more appreciated than we can say, so THANK YOU!


Parents who wish to volunteer in Leander ISD must complete a volunteer application and receive approval every year. We have many activities coming up where approved volunteers will be needed.


To apply to be a volunteer, go to www.leanderisd.org, and follow these steps:


  • click the heading “How Do I…”
  • click “Volunteer at my child’s school”
  • click "Volunteer Registration"


Approval usually takes just a few days, and you will receive an email confirming approval.


In order to ensure the safety of our children, all classroom helpers and parent volunteers must be approved by Leander ISD. We appreciate our parent volunteers very much - sign-up today!


Have a wonderful Thanksgiving,


Lauren, Maggie, & Erin
