Parents can also help out in the classrooms by assisting the teachers, working with students, and helping with paperwork or after school programs. Volunteers may also chaperone field trips or campus events. All parents interested in volunteering must contact the school secretary to schedule an appointment for a LiveScan fingerprinting background check prior to volunteering at school or chaperoning any school events or field trips.

  • Read to and with your child each day.

  • Monitoring amount of television their children watch.
  • Participating, as appropriate, in decisions relating to my children’s education.
  • Promoting positive use of my child’s extracurricular time.
