Paideia Classical Christian School is eager to involve parents in their children’s education. The usual parent volunteer requirement is 2 hours per week or 4 hours every other week for each Paideia family. Families with multiple children at Paideia are only required to fill one volunteer slot. Parents can either assist as volunteers in the classroom for kindergarten or elementary or they can help with grading work, cleaning, or other special projects. We will develop a schedule for our parent volunteers in August prior to the start of school, trying to accommodate as many requests for volunteer times as we can.
During their volunteer time, we ask parents to help us cultivate a vibrant community of faith and learning. We ask parent volunteers to dress in clothing appropriate for a professional environment (e.g. not in athletic wear) and to put away their cell phones when they are assisting in the classroom with students.
During their volunteer time, we also ask that parents do not bring any other non-enrolled children with them. Please let us know if work schedules make this time commitment impossible, and we will brainstorm alternatives. For parents unable to volunteer, we do have a volunteer opt-out fee as a second-best option.
Paideia is grateful for all the parent volunteers who help make our school run smoothly.
