In order to have a smooth operation, we need our parents to participate in one of three ways. Please read through these and make sure you understand what would be expected of you!
(1) Teachers -- we LOVE when parents would like to teach. For K-5th grade, we need enthusastic parents who love the subject matter and want to teach it to young folks. For middle-high school, we do look for expertise in the subject matter. You don't need to be a certified teacher, but some sort of experience in the field is preferred. Parents are NOT REQUIRED to teach, but are our first 'pool' of candidates for the classroom.
(2) MASH Volunteers (MAndatory Service Hours). Parents complete a 4 hour shift every 2-3 weeks...usually about 15 shifts a year. This includes lunchroom and recess help, office help, cleaning/restocking through the day, etc.
(3) Regular volunteer in a classroom or in some capacity of the day OR a grader at home.
We do also have a 'buyout' option if you do not want to come in during the school day. This adds an additional $1000 to your tuition total.
