Volunteer Information We believe that parents/guardians are a child's first and most important teachers. We promote effective , lifetime participation in the education experiences of your child. there are many ways a parent can participate, and the best way to do so is by volunteering. We certainly need and encourage your participation at every opportunity. These activities could include providing materials, helping with classroom celebrations, sharing a special talent or interest with the class, and/or reading to the class or a group of students. There are also opportunities in the school to help out in the media center. school-wide events and activities, or maybe even assisting in the cafeteria. If you are interested in participating in any of these events on a scheduled and/or continuing basis, or have supervisory responsibility for children, you must complete and submit a school volunteer background check request form and receive an approval prior to the date you begin to volunteer. Please take into consideration that these approvals can take from 4-6 weeks to receive, so if you want to work with students, etc.,please complete and submit this form as soon as possible so that the paper work can begin. We hope that you understand the need to protect our students from any danger while attending school activities.
