Volunteer Opportunities
During the year there are a number of ways to meet the 15 hour per family volunteer requirement. Most parents enjoy working in the classroom. Once you attend a Volunteer Orientation Class and have a background screening you may sign up to work in a classroom. Volunteer hours are also available for coming to Parent Education Nights, Parenting Skill Update classes, becoming an Art Docent, helping with a fund raiser or a school service project. For parents unable to assist in the class, ask your child's teacher for ideas on take home or school grounds maintenance projects. Volunteer hours are recorded on a special sheet and located near the classroom door. Once you have fulfilled the volunteer requirement you are encouraged to continue assisting in your child's classroom but no longer need to record your time.   Typical volunteer jobs

We are looking for a volunteer to offer cooking classes to parents. Interested? You would be responsible for organizing your program, creating flyers for the class you would like to offer and then signing up parents. Interested?
