Parents Add Immeasurable Value
Parents are a valued component of our school program and they are encouraged to participate in school activities. The success of our school program is greatly assisted by reliable volunteers. A parent volunteer form to help coordinate the involvement of volunteers will be sent home early in September.
Activities and special events such as reading with children, providing special programs, assisting with field trips, homeroom representatives, etc., are greatly dependent on regular volunteers.
We have had strong support from our students’ families in the past for field trips and special events offered in the course of the school year. We welcome parents attending on such occasions where room and/or transport allow. We look forward to a continuation of such support and involvement.
Where parents wish to visit the school and classrooms outside of these occasions, they are asked to arrange these times in advance with the teacher or the volunteer coordinator.
In the event that volunteer drivers are needed to support a school activity, driver’s abstract requirements are a part of the screening process and are valid only for the current school year. Volunteer registrations and security clearances must also be in place. These must be arranged well in advance.
