YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller
At Parker Performing Arts we believe building strong partnerships with parents, teachers, students and staff creates a happy, engaged community. We welcome the many diverse talents you volunteers bring to our community, and we honor your commitment to making PPA the best it can be.
Our school Bond Rating and Charter Renewal requests and evaluates volunteer participation data. High participation demonstrates our parents’ commitment to the long-term viability of the school.
WHAT IS MY VOLUNTEER COMMITMENT?
Each two parent family commits to volunteering a minimum of 30 hours and single parents complete 15 hours by July 1st each school year. Families will receive a quarterly accounting of the hours they have donated.
