We welcome and encourage all parents to visit and volunteer at TJ. There are opportunities to assist with chaperoning field trips, help with special class events, be a guest reader in the classroom, volunteer in the library or art room, or join your child for lunch and/or recess.

If you wish to take advantage of these opportunities or just wish to be eligible for such an opportunity, you must complete the FCCPS Volunteer Information Form. Those of you who completed the form more than two years ago will need to complete the form again. Please allow at least a week for the form to be processed. The form can be found under the Forms tab or by following this link:

If there are grandparents or out of town guests who may be interested in joining you on such a visit, they will need to complete the forms as well.
