Each year, families are asked to contribute to the Gardner School community through volunteer hours. A Tumtum / Mazama family is asked to volunteer for at least 20 hours per school year, and a Kalama through Tahoma family is asked to volunteer at least 30 hours per school year.
Please fill out a Volunteer Opportunity form here to begin volunteering!
If you are new to volunteering at The Gardner School, please fill out a Consent for Background Check. (If you already had a background check last year at The Gardner School, you do not need to complete a form again this year.)
Extended care is available from 7:15-8:15am, and until 6:30pm each school day.
Purchase of extended care is available in two formats this year: Contract / Defined Rate Plan and by Drop-in / Occasional Use Punchcards.
Download the Extended Care Contract to see pricing, and to decide which form of extended care works best for your family. Discounts are available for siblings if both students are using the extended care contract.
Occasional use aftercare is $9 / hour, and is available by purchasing a punchcard in the office.
Punchcards are available in the following increments:
10 punches (5 hours) pay $45.00
20 punches (10 hours) pay $90.00
40 punches (20 hours) pay $180.00
100 punches (50 hours) pay $450.00
