Keeley Elementary has the most awesome volunteers. We truly appreciate everyone who donates their time to our school. We are always in need of volunteers and you do make a difference. Please fill out the "Keeley Volunteer Form" and return to your child's teacher. This will give us an idea of the volunteer opportunities that you are interested in. A few of the many reasons people volunteer:
- Makes you feel a part of the school
- You become more involved in your child's life
- Gives you the opportunity to try new skills
- Improves student success
- Self satisfaction
Volunteer application process
For the safety of all students, the Garland Independent School District requires all potential volunteers who will work at any campus receive a background check by the Department of Public Safety. This check will be completed using the Raptor Volunteer Management System.
Participate in an organization
WatchDOGS (Dads of Great Students) are fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and any other father figures who volunteer to serve at least one day a year in a variety of school activities as assigned by the school principal or other administration. This program provides positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important.

Team GISD Reading with Rodney
Please see the power point and video about the moving story of Rodney Mills, who was a former custodian at Keeley. The district has begun a new initiative to give opportunities for eading to students that may not have those opportunities outside of school. The goal of the district is to build a mobile library that will travel within the district to some of the hig risk areas for students to check out books.
We are collecting new or like new books. The books can be from all ranges...pre-readers to high school literature. Just bring the books to school and we have a bin to place the books. We hope everyone can donate to this worthy cause of reading.
Our Makerspaces program is off to a great start, however, we could use a few items. We would love broken tape players, dvd players, etc. to take apart. If your child is not interested in his/her legos, kinex or other build sets, we will give them a good home in Makerspaces.
