Volunteer Information

Parents are valuable partners at Monticello!  As partners all parents are expected to volunteer 50 hours per year to  their child's and the school's success.  There are many ways that volunteering can be done. Below is a list of ways that you can help make our school even better. Your help and talents are very much needed to enrich the school's learning environment and our student's life experiences. Please don't hesitate to talk with your child's teacher or the principal about how you can be a special benefit to Monticello's students.

All volunteers need to fill out a Volunteer Packet, available from the office. Once that is returned we will find the best niche possible for your talents and skills.  Those few who will be with students in an unsupervised environment will need to have a background check. Monticello will  provide volunteer training, which you will be asked to take part in. We have also prepared an easy to read 1 page document for classroom volunteers to help them be the best volunteers possible. Please take a few minutes to look over the Volunteer Do's and Don'ts
