Parent participation is an essential ingredient of the Renaissance School program.
Every family is asked to contribute 25 hours of volunteer service. Volunteer options include, but are not limited to, copy services, yearbook, driving for field trips, lunch supervision, attendance phone calling, production help and PTSA committees. Parents may choose to share their talents in classes and organize activities occurring beyond the school day. Volunteer hours are logged with the parent volunteer coordinator.
Parent/Guardian Contribution Fee
Each family is asked to make a $200 parent contribution per student, per year in lieu of other fundraising. The Renaissance School Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) administers this fund. These funds provide for enrichment materials, guest artist visits and field trips. Other fundraising opportunities will be available; however, there is no parent or student obligation to participate once the parent contribution fee has been paid.
