Volunteer

We welcome and encourage family members to become active participants in our school community. Please review the various ways you can become involved within the school:
 

Volunteer

 
Studies show that parental involvement in a child's education is one of the most important factors in raising student self-esteem and academic achievement; moreover, most experts agree that parental involvement should go beyond attendance at Parent/ Teacher Conferences and Open Houses. We realize, however, that each of our families is unique – with its own priorities, needs, talents, and time constraints -- and therefore, we offer various options for volunteering.  We encourage you to become involved by indicating below your areas of interest and availability.  Your responses may be shared with staff, parent groups, Pinnacle School Board and community members, who are seeking assistance for school related happenings.  Thank you for being an active member of our school community.

Communicate
 
  • Communication with your student and the school is very important. We encourage parents and guardians to communicate with their students' teachers via email or phone, dialing the specific teachers' extensions.
  • You do not have to wait until the Parent/Teacher Conference Days to conference with your student's teacher(s). Email and call them to schedule an appointment.
  • Communicate with your students about what they learn each day as well and inquire about homework assignments, future projects, and special events. This will demonstrate that you feel education is important.
  • Give your feedback online. Tell us what you like or suggest what you would like to see done differently.
 
 
Participate

Parents can participate in their student's education in many ways that fit even the busiest schedules. Participation can be in different forms:
  • Attend special events and field trips. This can be very rewarding for both students and parents.
  • Find volunteer needs that can be done from your own home by checking with your student's teacher or the school newsletter.
  • Set aside time each day tot talk to your child about his/her day. Ask questions and offer assistance. This can be one of the most valuable ways of participating in your student's education.
  • Check your child's grades online routinely. It is critical to register for an Infinite Campus account to view your child's progress and to check grades and assignments. The Parent Portal gives parents a current view of grades, missing works, and email access to each teacher involved in your child's education.
