VolunteerWe love to see our parents and grandparents supporting our school and our students. We have several committees and we welcome you to share your knowledge with us by joining one of them and supporting our programs.

Curriculum Support (Chair Heather Tosten)

Having parents or grandparents come into our classrooms to share personal experiences is always such a great addition to our curriculum. Each month we focus on different topics and welcome any class presentations, materials or photos to help give our students a first hand glimpse at them in action.

 

Classroom Volunteering

Our teachers encourage our parents to participate in the classroom when they can. Each classroom will have a volunteer calendar outside their room so that you can see how you can fit us in your schedule. In order to volunteer in the rooms each volunteer is required by the State of Maryland to complete a Maryland State Department of Education Release of Information. This form does require a notarized signature.
