As an important part of our school community, each family at Ridgeline has committed to donating 40 hours of volunteer time. Ridgeline Montessori is an amazing community of committed and caring families. We rely on family involvement to organize, facilitate, and participate in a wide variety of activities. Not only does volunteering enrich the educational environment for our students, it also brings us together as a community. Welcome to Ridgeline and the volunteer community!
If you will be driving students, you'll need to submit a completed proof-of-auto-insurance form along with other documents as requested.
Whenever parents or other family members put in volunteer time at Ridgeline, we want to know about it! This is vital information, especially when we are applying for grants. The greater the participation and support for our school that we can document, the greater chance we have of receiving generous grants. Even when you reach your 40-hour goal, please continue to record your hours. Last year our families logged more than 10,000 hours!
In the office there is a binder with volunteer log sheets. Please record all volunteer activities on this sheet, writing down the type of activity and the number of hours devoted to it. (A parent is in charge of tracking the volunteer hours and breaking it down by category so we can see what percentage of our volunteers' time is spent where).
To volunteer with students or at school during school hours, you need to have an approved background check. Forms are available in the office. Once you are cleared, you will receive a green name tag. Keep this in the volunteer-name-tag binder, and wear it whenever you volunteer. If you do not have your name tag, you will need to be escorted throughout the building.
Thank you for joining our community of volunteers! If you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask. We look forward to working with you!
