FAQ'S RELATED TO VOLUNTEER


Q: HOW CAN I VOLUNTEER AT MITCHELL?

A:  All major volunteer opportunities at Mitchell are coordinated by GMSPA. Believe it or not, there are volunteer opportunities for almost every month of the year. GMSPA sends out a weekly email blast with such opportunities so please watch for them. We would love to have new families volunteer at least once during Kindergarten with GMSPA. Aside from GMSPA, there are many other volunteer opportunities available at the Mitchell, Please speak with Kevin Martes  (Assistant Principal) for further info regarding the workroom volunteer opportunities.

 

Q: CAN I VOLUNTEER IN A CLASSROOM?

A: A few years ago, with necessary budget cuts, sadly classroom aides were cut. In lieu of that, many teachers do ask for parent/guardian volunteers throughout the year. If you are able, please do consider helping out. Teachers who want parent/guardian volunteers in the classroom typically ask by sending notes home with your student. You will also need to complete a C.O.R.I each September and participate once in a Volunteer Training Session.

 

Q: IS THERE ANYTHING I SHOULD KNOW BEFORE VOLUNTEERING AT MITCHELL?

A: There are 2 very important things to know if you want to be part of our volunteer community. The first is VOLUNTEER TRAINING and the second is a C.O.R.I. (Criminal Offender Record Information). While your student is in school at Mitchell (K-3), you must attend the Volunteer Training session ONCE and EVERY year you must complete a C.O.R.I. for the school district to process. This is done for the protection and well-being of the entire school community. More information about both of these things will come home with your student during the first 2 weeks of school.
