Volunteers are an integral part of The Academy. We always appreciate any help from moms, dads, uncles, aunts, grandparents, and friends who want to bring additional resources to the school. Research shows there are a number of benefits with parent involvement. When families are involved in their children's education, grades and test scores go up, children become more likely to pass and attend schools after high school, and they tend to have fewer discipline problems.
The Academy provides a rich array of volunteer opportunities which address the educational needs of all students and support educational and school community needs. Community members are encouraged to volunteer and support learning to facilitate positive community involvement, partnership and collaborations.
We understand your time is precious and valuable. So we are happy with whatever amount of time you can contribute. Volunteering doesn't take a huge time commitment. As little as an h our or two a semester makes a big difference. Volunteer opportunities can include help during the school day: in the classroom, lunch/recess monitors, or as a chaperone during field trips.* Additionally, there are summertime projects, at home projects and performing arts productions available.
All volunteers are required to complete a volunteer contract prior to service. All volunteers during the school day must report to the main office, sign in and receive their Visitor Badge, and then report to the classroom or area they will be volunteering at. All Volunteers/chaperones (including but not limited to drama or music activities, field trips, or other events) must arrive at the school's front office during regular hours to complete the Raptor check prior to attending/chaperoning the event/activity. Volunteers may also be subject to a background check.
*Please note, siblings or preschool children are not allowed to accompany parents in the classroom or on field trips.
