Thank you for your commitment to be involved with your school community. It’s what makes LCMCS truly unique — we love this place!
All families commit to volunteer a minimum of 40 hours during the school year as part of the enrollment process. This commitment can be met in many ways, including working with students in the classroom, making classroom materials for teachers, chaperoning field trips, assisting with special events, working on school clean up days, working on fundraisers, and assisting specialist teachers (art, music, etc.) or special areas such as bus stop monitoring or the library. A list of current volunteer needs may be included in the weekly update and you may receive stand-alone emails for more immediate needs.
Everyone who volunteers at LCMCS will complete a Volunteer Confidentiality Agreement and Volunteers who will be in contact with students must consent to a background check paid for by the school. This protects all our students. Volunteers who will be driving students on school business (field trips) must complete an Auto Insurance Information Form and have on file in the school office a copy of current insurance coverage and driver’s license. Background checks must be completed and volunteers must be approved prior to engaging in activities that involve contact with students. Volunteers and visitors are always asked to sign in at the office and wear a volunteer or visitor tag prior to entering classrooms.
Monetary or Material/Supply donations can also count towards your hours. $20 equals one hour of service. This includes donations to the Annual Fund as well as the value of items you have donated for school events such as the auction as long as you purchased the items.
Please include receipts if possible. If not possible, please estimate to the best of your knowledge the monetary worth of your donation.
Parent/Teacher Conferences, Parent Education nights, PTO participation, and School Event participation all count towards your 40 hour family volunteer commitment. Chaperoning overnight trips are logged at 12 hours per night. For example, if the trip was from October 12-14 (two nights), you can log 24 total hours of volunteer time.
If you have any questions about your volunteer commitment or are looking for ways to fulfill your hours, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Mishawn Nelson, firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
