Parent/Guardian Expectations
Parent/guardian participation/interest are widely recognized as critical factors in the educational success of all students.   Volunteers make our programs stronger, and as such, we strongly encourage families to volunteer a minimum of 30 hours per school year; no student will be punished for a family's failure to volunteer.  There are many ways to become involved, including volunteering in a classroom, attending a field trip or participating on a committee.  See the Parent/Student Handbook for more information regarding LiveScan and TB requirements for volunteering.
