Parent Volunteer Opportunities

Each family is required to volunteer 36 hours per school year per child enrolled, in order to involve the entire family in the education of your children. Please see below for current volunteer opportunities.

Don't forget to log your volunteer hours!

Please download and fill out this form and turn it in to the office. Keeping track of how many hours our parents volunteer in our school helps us with our school accreditation. It's very important!

Check back soon for more 2015-2016 School Year Volunteer Opportunities!
