Volunteer at Waddell
The PTSO and the school are both very grateful for the many hours of work that our parent volunteers put in each week. There are many “levels” of volunteer activities – from the classroom to the Copy Center, Media Center or Nurse’s Office to one of the many PTSO after school events. If there is an area that you would like to be involved in and you would like more information please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to volunteer at the school or to go on any class field trips, you must be registered with CMS as a volunteer. Go HERE for more information on volunteering and for the registration form. You also must renew your registration each school year in order to remain an active volunteer. That can be done HERE.
We’re ALWAYS looking for volunteers. If you have ideas for fundraising, want to be on the Board or are just interested in getting involved, please let us know!
School Volunteer Policy
Volunteer Procedures – Waddell Language Academy
(Effective as of Monday September 19th)
Parents who volunteer are a valuable asset to the success of our school. In order to facilitate volunteering and to ensure a fair and efficient end to the school day, the following procedures have been established for the end of the day for volunteers to pick up their own children following their volunteer time.
1. Parents who will be volunteering will send an email to: TRANSPORTATION.WADDELL@CMS.K12.NC.US no later than 1:00 p.m. indicating the volunteer duty with date and time. Parents must include their child’s name and homeroom teacher. The office will create a pass for the volunteer’s child to go to the cafeteria for carpool to sit at the volunteer table.
a. Parents do not send this information to classroom teachers
b. Parents are not eligible to have their child use the “Volunteer” table if the email is not received by the cutoff time. In this case, the child must ride the bus or wait at carpool to be picked up @ 3:45 when car riders come to the office.
2. When parents sign in to volunteer they will see Tracee Mann to receive a volunteer pass. This pass will allow parents to pick up their child at the “Volunteer” table in the cafeteria and students will receive the transportation change from the office.
3. Teachers will send students whose parents are volunteering to carpool during carpool dismissal and those students will sit at the “Volunteer” table. Parents may pick their child up from the volunteer table in the cafeteria AFTER students have arrived in the cafeteria and have been seated for carpool. Students may not be taken from the classroom or out of the line from the hallway.
4. Parents will sign students out on the clipboard on the “Volunteer” table in the cafeteria and turn in the volunteer pass. Parents may not pick up other students, who are not their own, unless written permission has been submitted to the office prior to dismissal.
