Volunteer Opportunities & Commitment

For a listing of available volunteer opportunities, please refer to the weekly school newsletter. All contact information and sign up details can be located under the heading, “Volunteer Opportunities”. There are many opportunities to choose from!

Our Parent Commitment Program requires all school families with children in 3K through 8th grade to commit to a set amount of volunteer time. Parental volunteers enable us to offer programs and activities that would not otherwise be possible.

Parents whose oldest child is in 5K through 8th grade will be asked to perform 25 hours of volunteer time per family in one year’s time (May 1st through April 30th). Single parent families will be asked to volunteer half of this amount (12 hours).

  • Parents whose oldest is in 4K will be asked to perform 15 hours of volunteer time per family in one year’s time (May 1st through April 30th). Single parent families will be asked to volunteer half of this amount (7 hours).
  • Parents whose oldest child is in 3K will be asked to perform 10 hours of volunteer time per family in one year’s time (May 1st through April 30th). Single parent families will be asked to volunteer half this amount (5 hours).

No rollover of hours from year to year will be allowed. If the number of volunteer hours is not reached at the end of a full year, the family will be billed at a rate of $25 per hour for the difference between what their responsibility is, and what they have volunteered to date.

Families choosing not participate in this program can “opt out”. The opt out fee is $25 per hour.

  • The opt out fee is $645 for families whose oldest child is 5K through 8th grade.
  • The opt out fee is $375 for families whose oldest child is in the 4K program.
  • The opt out fee is $250 for families whose oldest child is in the 3K program.

By opting out, the requirement to participate in this program is waived, and the family’s responsibility is fulfilled.

To provide a more effective distribution and use of volunteer hours, we are asking that some of these hours be on specific activities.

  • Parents whose oldest child is in 5K through 8th grade will be asked to perform 5 of their 25 hours on fundraising activities. Single parent families will be asked to volunteer half of this amount (3 hours).
  • Parents whose oldest child is in 4K will be asked to perform 3 of their 15 hours on fundraising activities. Single parent families will be asked to volunteer half this amount (2 hours).
  • Parents whose oldest child is in 3K will be asked to perform 2 of their 10 hours on fundraising activities. Single parent families will be asked to volunteer half this amount (1 hour).
