“Volunteering is not just giving of your time,
it is giving of yourself”
SkyView Academy believes family volunteerism in our school is a key component to the successful education of our students. Families involved in their child’s education help make learning a priority, and thus benefits the student while putting them first.
SkyView has a Volunteer Coordinator on staff who reports directly to the Executive Director. This individual is responsible for recruitment, placement, training, and scheduling of all volunteers at the school.
We ask that each of our Elementary families volunteer 40 hours per school year including six traffic shifts. If you break this down, it is about 1 hour per week of the school year. For all single family households, we simply ask for 20 hours per parent including three traffic shifts.
For our Middle School families, we ask for 30 hours of volunteer service at SkyView Academy each school year. With the exception, if there is a younger sibling at the elementary level, then the family would fall under the elementary family guidelines and would volunteer 40 hours. For all single family households, each parent splits the responsibility equally in half.
At the High School level, we ask our families for 20 hours of volunteer service at SkyView Academy each school year. With the exception, if there is a younger sibling in middle school, the family would fall under the middle school family guidelines and would volunteer 30 hours. Or, if there is a younger sibling in the elementary level, then the family would fall under the elementary family guidelines and would volunteer 40 hours. For all single family households, each parent splits the responsibility equally in half.
Preschool families who do not have any siblings in elementary, middle or high school are not required to have volunteer service hours.
Your volunteer time can be accomplished by performing a variety of tasks at the school including but not limited to:
- Planning and organizing various events and activities including field day, room parties, after school events, art and music programs
- Assisting teachers with math and reading group support students
- Helping with classroom projects throughout the year, including many at home projects that must be returned to school in the designated time frame
- Volunteering for recurring daily activities such as carline, recess, and lunch duty
