Volunteering at Mount View School

Volunteers are a vital part of our school’s operation. Research strongly indicates that the single most powerful factor in developing productive school experiences is the close relationship between home and school, parents and teachers. Our school recognizes this value and encourages the use of volunteers to enhance our programs.

Volunteers can assist by:

  • Improving the adult/student ratio
  • Expanding the variety of classroom activities
  • Allowing teachers to spend more instructional time with students
  • Enriching the quality of school programs
  • Building an understanding through involvement

Another goal of the volunteer program is to promote communication between school staff and parents as we work together to provide the best possible education for our children.
