Volunteers are the lifeblood of Renaissance. Without the support of dedicated support from parents and other community volunteers, many of the great programs and activities simply would not happen.
Family Volunteer Contribution
Parent participation is an essential ingredient of the Renaissance School program. It is recommended that each Renaissance student's family contributes twenty-five (25) hours of volunteer service for the first student and an additional fifteen (15) hours of volunteer service for the second student attending during the same school year with the school or PTSA.
Volunteer options include, but are not limited to: copy services; yearbook; driving or chaperoning for field trips or dances; 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.
Volunteers must be approved by the School District (or use the online volunteer application when you sign on with your parent user name and password). Volunteer hours are logged by the PTSA's Volunteer Coordinator (contact the PTSA or school office for more information). Families who feel they can’t fully contribute by volunteering time can contact the PTSA for other options.
Studies show that the more parents are involved in the school, the better students perform, so we appreciate parents jumping right in. Thank you!
