Community involvement is a critical component of Lexington City Schools and the Jacket Parent Academy Program. One way in which Lexington City Schools promote community involvement is through volunteerism. At Lexington City Schools, we value every second, every minute, every hour and every service volunteers contribute. In 2022, members of community organizations throughout the Davidson County area and LCS staff contributed nearly 2,000 community service volunteer hours to our schools.
If you would like to join our LCS family, where we will continue to foster relationships with our community, staff and administrators, please sign-up to volunteer at any of our schools by clicking on the link and completing the forms to your right. These forms are also available in the front office of every school.
Thank you for choosing LCS to volunteer your time. WELCOME!
