A volunteer is many things: an extra pair of hands, an extra measure of personal warmth, a valuable special resource for classroom enrichment, a bridge between the instructional program and the community. We cannot buy what volunteers give our schools!
Guidelines for Volunteers:
Confidentiality- Discussing school events, lessons and issues, in general, is fine, but nothing about individual children. It is vital that each child's privacy is protected.
- Volunteers should be prompt and consistent on being in school when scheduled to help.
- All suggestions and opinions will always be welcome, but volunteers will work under the supervision of a teacher.
- Volunteers must refer ALL discipline problems to the teacher, principal or staff member in charge.
- Volunteers must not contact students after the school day is out and they are not on school grounds.

All expenses connected with volunteering are deductible on your Federal tax return.
