Volunteer Opportunities

Do you want to volunteer at Lanier but you aren’t sure where to start?  We are happy to have you!  Please visit our volunteer survey  to tell us how you’d like to help!



PTO Committees and Events Volunteers

From year-long projects to one-time events, we always have opportunities. So if you’d like to support our students and work with some pretty darn fun parents, consider getting involved. To volunteer, contact our VP of Volunteering, Beth Lemon.


Uniform and Lanier Gear Store Volunteers

We need parents to staff the school store during the school year. This is a really easy and enjoyable way to meet other parents and help out our Purple Pups. To learn more and/or volunteer for a shift, please visit the online sign up sheet:

Lanier Magnet Tour Guides

Share your time and knowledge with prospective Lanier students and families touring the school. You will be accompanied on each tour by our 8th grade student leaders. You won’t need to know anything about the magnet application process, the lottery, or anything tricky!  Just be there to offer your perspective as a Lanier parent. Sign up here.


Crossing Guard Assistance Needed

Concerned about the safety of our children? Our principal is asking for adult volunteers who are interested in acting in a crossing guard capacity in the morning and after school.  If you are interested, email Dr. B here.


Teacher and Staff Appreciation Volunteers

The Lanier PTO hosts monthly luncheons for the teachers and staff at Lanier to recognize all that they do for our students.  To learn more, donate and/or volunteer, please visit the online sign up sheet:

HISD Special Olympics Field Day Volunteers

HISD Athletics, in conjunction with Special Olympics Texas, will be hosting Field Days for HISD Middle School Students at Butler Stadium on Wednesday, November 15th from 8:30AM to 1:30PM.  Volunteers are needed to assist with the stations.  No special training is required, and it is truly a fun event for the athletes and the volunteers.  Come out and help cheer on our own Lanier athletes and other HISD Middle School students.  The event is free, but volunteers must register at the Eventbrite link.


NOTE: All Lanier volunteers must be registered through VIPS: www.houstonisd.org/vips. However, if you had an active VIPS account during the previous school year and had registered as a Lanier volunteer, just present an ID at the front desk or in Office B to be re-activated this year.
