Garfield’s Staff and Students Need YOU!

The Garfield Staff and PTSA urge you to volunteer to work with our students, faculty and administrators so that Garfield High School is a place where every student thrives. We welcome and encourage the involvement of all parents and guardians, as well as members of the community.

Current Volunteer Opportunities

To learn more about volunteer opportunities at Garfield, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 206-252-2400. The Volunteer Office is located in the PTSA Community Room (100A) just off the Commons.

There are many ways to volunteer with Garfield, either through the PTSA or within the school. PTSA requests tend to be one-time, event related commitments. The opportunities within the school are typically more long-term, once/week opportunities, but occasionally a staff member will have a short term, project-related request.


More information about the PTSA and how you can become involved can be found on the Garfield PTSA website. Learn more about the Garfield PTSA and how you can become involved
