YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller

 


In previous years, we had a requirement to complete 30 volunteer hours for each family and 15 hours for single-parent families. Due to COVID-19 and working to stay healthy, the requirement will not be followed during the 2020-2021 school year. 

 

With that being said, we DO need help every day with our driveline drop off and dismissal.

 

Car Line

Our car line is always a great way to support PPA. We offer times before and after school. 

 

Morning driveline support times: 7:30am - 8:15am

Afternoon driveline support times: 3:00pm - 4:00pm

 

These times are only for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
NO FRIDAYS!  :)

 

Sign ups are not needed this year - simply show up! We can always use more adult support as students begin and end their school day. Sharing a smile and kind words always makes an impact and may be exactly what a student needs in that moment. 

 

Thank you for your help and support! We are looking forward to a fun and successful school year together!

 

 

General Volunteer Guidelines

At Parker Performing Arts we believe building strong partnerships with parents, teachers, students and staff creates a happy, engaged community. We welcome the many diverse talents you volunteers bring to our community, and we honor your commitment to making PPA the best it can be.

Our school Bond Rating and Charter Renewal requests and evaluates volunteer participation data. High participation demonstrates our parents’ commitment to the long-term viability of the school.

WHAT IS MY VOLUNTEER COMMITMENT? 

Each two parent family commits to volunteering a minimum of 30 hours and single parents complete 15 hours by July 1st each school year. Families will receive a quarterly accounting of the hours they have donated.
