VOLUNTEER POLICY

  • Volunteers must sign-in at the office before entering the classroom. You will also need to wear a nametag provided by the office. When you are done, please return your nametag and sign out.
  • For school purposes please have the students call you Mrs., Mr., Miss, or Ms.
  • If your child’s behavior changes in any way during your time in the classroom you will be asked to volunteer in other ways outside the classroom.
  • Please be punctual, as you will be depended on for the specific time you have signed up for.
  • If you know you will be gone, please contact the teacher or the office as soon as possible. The people you assist have likely made plans that include you and will need to revise them. The LAM office number is 765-8238.
  • Please do not bring preschoolers or siblings when you volunteer. The teacher may make exceptions.
  • Allow the teacher to discipline children. If there are incidents of misbehavior, it is the teacher’s job to deal with them. Volunteers may gently redirect behavior in accordance with posted rules.
  • Feel free to let the teacher know where you excel (telling stories, math, science, singing, playing instruments, handcrafts, computer use, photography, etc.). Teachers love to use volunteers when their expertise enhances the curriculum.
  • During school hours, from 8am to 4pm, adults may use the bathrooms across the parking lot at the church. The bathrooms in the school building are reserved for finger printed adults, licensed through the City of CdA only. If you are interested, please see the LAM Office for information. Once you receive your license, please provide the LAM Office with a copy. If you are going to be a regular volunteer, you may want to consider licensing.
  • You cannot, by law, be unsupervised with the children even momentarily without completing the finger printing/background check with the City.
  • Out of respect for others, please restrict cell phone use to emergencies and excuse yourself from the room.
  • Effective Ways to Work with Children: Encourage them to do their own thinking. Give them plenty of time to answer; silence often means they are thinking and organizing what they want to say or write. Help students to tackle their work, but do not do their work for them. If they get off-track, help them get back on track in a tactful manner. Maintain a sense of humor!
