Parent and community involvement is essential to the successful education of our children. Volunteering for our school not only helps the students and staff, but most importantly shows the children that they are important to us. We appreciate the ways our volunteers help us and encourage you to become a part of our volunteer team.
Whether you are interested in donating products or services, volunteering for a single event, or would like to help out with one of the many committees, your involvement will make a HUGE difference! Parents, guardians, grandparents and older siblings are encouraged to volunteer.

How do I check in at school?When you first go into the front office for the first time, you will need a Photo ID to have an ID sticker printed. On subsequent visits, there is a computer terminal you can sign in to and your information sticker will be printed. Office staff can help you. Make sure to choose VOLUNTEER (instead of VISITOR) and then select PTA so that your volunteer hours are logged. You MUST sign out before you leave the campus.
What are my resources at school?There are a lot of resources available to you as a volunteer. The teacher workroom/breakroom is located down the first hallway to the left. Laminating Machine: There is a large laminating machine in the workroom if you need to laminate for a teacher or make paper items that you may want to reuse. Please ask a Board member for a tutorial if you've never used the machine. Paper: You can find plain white copy paper and colored butcher paper for needed projects in the workroom. Refrigerator: The workroom has a full-sized refrigerator if you need to keep lunch or drinks cold. Mailboxes: Teacher mailboxes are located in the teacher workroom as well. The PTA Board mailbox is located at the bottom right corner of the teacher mailboxes. Sensitive items (forms with money or personal information) can be put into the locked dropbox located to the right of the mailboxes.
Where are the adult restrooms?There is an adult restroom located in the teacher workroom. The workroom is located down the first hallway to the left after you walk in the building.
Are there any volunteer guidelines?1. Respect the teacher's classroom and rules at all times. If helping in the classroom, make sure you know what time the teacher would like you to help. Keeping the learning environment consistent is priority. 2. Keep confidences. If a student or teacher reveals personal information, regard it as a confidence. 3. Set a good example for the students when at the school in words and deeds. Use positive comments and encourage students, especially when they are working on difficult things. 4. Be reliable and prompt. If you have to cancel or be absent, please find an alternate volunteer or contact the teacher or PTA Board member as soon as possible.
