VOLUNTEER PROGRAMS - PARENTS

If you want to volunteer in the classroom, you will have to be fingerprinted and get a TB clearance from your doctor. Take the Negative TB test and a memo available at our office to the Dent Center Personnel Office (make an appointment first) to get finger printed. There will be a $32.00 charge.

A volunteer is a very important part of the School Improvement Program.  Serving in this capacity is one of the most significant ways that you can contribute to your child's education and school.

Objectives:  To improve educational opportunities for all pupils by providing the teacher with freedom from routine duties which cut down on the actual teaching and planning time; to provide more individual help for students by lowering the adult-pupil ratio; and to bring a close relationship between home and school.  Involvement brings understanding and cooperation.  The volunteer works under the guidance and supervision of the teacher.

Volunteers serve varying amounts of time on the job depending on the request, type of activity and the volunteer's home schedule.  Anyone interested in volunteering can contact the school office or any of the school staff at 687-1150.
