Volunteer Orientation – 2017 Change!

Dear Parents and Friends,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! We are pleased to invite you to join the dedicated group of school volunteers who contribute so much of their time and talent to enrich our school and PTO programs. We encourage parents, grandparents, friends and neighbors to join us by volunteering for various activities in our school.

The Anne Arundel County Board of Education requires ALL VOLUNTEERS to attend the school’s volunteer orientation and view the sexual harassment and child abuse video before working with the children. Thank you for understanding that this is a requirement from the county, not our school, as a way of protecting our children and our volunteers.

Volunteer Orientations are scheduled for:

  • MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 11 at 9:00 a.m.
  • TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12 at 5:45 p.m. prior to Back to School Night
  • WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13 at 1:30 p.m.

AACPS requires that any volunteer or chaperone who will be working with children have a background check. Information about the county policy and the link for completing the background check can be found at:

https://www.aacps.org/Page/1869

In addition, there may be some field trips or activities that require a more extensive fingerprint- supported background check that requires an appointment and a fee. You will be notified by the school if that is necessary.

We look forward to having you be part of our volunteer team this year!

Sincerely,
Christina Gehring, PTO President
Heather Szczytko, Volunteer Coordinator
Heather Bachman, Staff Liaison for Volunteers
