VOLUNTEERING at CCCK-8
Volunteering at Coal Creek Canyon K-8 is a great way to give to our local students while keeping your interests alive. CCC K-8 invites both parents of children at the school as well as community members to volunteer in many ways. The most common volunteer opportunities are:
• Regular Classroom Support
• Guest Speakers
• Field Trip Chaperones
• At home support
• After-school club (sports included)
Regular Classroom Support – Regular classroom support gives adults the opportunity to have a regular schedule in a classroom of their choice. Teachers of all grades welcome volunteers in the classroom most days of the week with the focus most often being in the following subjects:
Literacy – help students with reading and writing
Read aloud – read to students in a group setting
Math – assist students with math
Science – support teachers with science instruction and classroom management
Guest Speakers – In an effort to support learning and enhance the curriculum provided by our fabulous teachers at CCC K-8, the PTSA is compiling a database of community members and parents who would like to come into the classroom and share their experiences in various subject matters. If you have some level of experience with a particular subject that relates to the curriculum, we would love to have you come in and share your real world experiences. We hope that this database will grow over time, so feel free to let us know what subjects you would like to share and we’ll add you in.
Community Volunteers please contact Shawn Linsacum for a Community Volunteer packet at 303-982-3409 or firstname.lastname@example.org
is a PTA program designed to effectively involve parents and families in support of children and their education. This program will help PTAs and parents find different ways to volunteer at home, in school, and in the community—all which support student learning. This way, parents can volunteer when they have time during the day, in the evening or on the weekends.
Make a promise to our children and to our school! A promise to volunteer three hours of your time during the course of the year, at or on behalf of our school. If you have more than one child at our school, a commitment of three hours per family is all that we ask. All adults (e. g. parents, guardians, grandparents) are encouraged to participate.
What counts toward my promise? There are numerous volunteer opportunities which will fulfill your commitment. Throughout the school year you will be notified via notes/emails from teachers, PTA Parent Express emails, PTA newsletter and PTA website of upcoming opportunities to fulfill your hours. Here are a few examples of what counts towards your hours:
- Classroom Volunteer
- Event Volunteer
- Donate needed items
- Donate food for events
- After school program volunteer
- Attend PTSA meeting
- PTSA Committee
