Interested in Volunteering in the classroom or on field trips?



Submit/Renew Volunteer Application Online


All volunteer applications expire on June 30.

Mandated Training Notice:  Governor Jerry Brown signed AB 1432 (Chapter 797, Statutes of 2014) on September 29, 2014. This new law went into effect on January 1, 2015, and requires California school districts to annually train mandated reporters on their child abuse reporting obligations under the law.

​​Volunteers:  Mandated Reporter Training is an additional "clearance" that needs to be done by all volunteers BEFORE being approved. Although Volunteers are not mandated reporters, it is a requirement of the district to train all volunteers. Volunteer applications will now expire June 30 of every year to ensure this process is completed annually. An email will be sent, 3-5 business days after the volunteer submits/renews their application, with a link and username to access a 32 minute training video. Upon completing the training, the volunteer is required to print and initial their "Certificate of Completion". This certificate is required in order to "clear"  the volunteer and forward their application for final approval. The certificate may be sent to Personnel Services, Attn: Delyzia Rosales or the volunteer may bring it directly to the Personnel Office.

LBJ COMMUNICATION SCOREBOARD 


COUNSELOR'S CORNER

  • Tips for Healthy Behavior & Making Friends
    Think and Act Positive will be an important theme for the year.

COACH BAKER FITNESS TIPS

  • FITNESS FOR LIFE-- In June LBJ received National Recognition of a Silver Award for its commitment to Healthy Nutrition and practices at school on a daily basis.

    Physical Education (PE) is important because it provides students with a knowledge of how to maintain and live a healthy lifestyle.  Multiple scientific studies prove that there is more to academic performance than just book learning. The amount of exercise students receive in school can create positive habits that serve to compliment academic achievement.
    Here at LBJ we believe that promoting physical health will benefit our students with healthier bodies accompanied by brighter minds.
    --- Our School encourages healthy eating every day.  All students are provided with twenty minutes every day to enjoy a healthy lunch.
