Classroom Volunteers - Volunteering in the classroom provides the opportunity to take an active role in your child's first school experience. Volunteers gain knowledge of the preschool curriculum and have the opportunity to observe learning experiences that are taking place within the classroom. Parents are required to be the Parent Helper in the classroom and are given the opportunity to sign up to be the helper at the Orientation Night held in August prior to the start of the school year. The parents are asked to work three times the first semester and three times the second semester. Moms, dads, grandparents and other caregivers are welcome to be the helper. We do ask that all Parent Helpers be at least 18 years of age. When you are helping in the classroom, please do not bring siblings, as this is a special time for your preschool child.
Prior to helping in the classroom, all volunteers must complete a district required background check. Click here for information on volunteering in the Francis Howell School District.
