Volunteers are essential to providing many of the school programs that our children enjoy. There are lots of ways to get involved, and there’s something certain to match your interests and schedule.
The PTA, in partnership with the teachers and school administration, is responsible for recruiting all volunteers. Parents are invited to volunteer during the Back to School Coffee held on the first morning of school, at Back to School Nights held during the first month of school, and on an as needed basis. Ongoing volunteering needs are announced via the school email newsletter as well as direct emails.
Classroom, Library, & Field Trips
In the lower grades, there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer in the classroom and library. Classroom volunteering is generally discussed during Back To School night, or you can ask your teacher how to get involved. The librarian can always use help with running the library, from shelving books to helping students find and check out books. Visit the UpToUs Library community or the school library for more info.
For all grades, field trips would not be possible without parent volunteers, both for driving and chaperoning. Field trip volunteer sign up information is generally provided during Back To School nights, or you can ask your classroom teacher for more info.
