Winterberry functions so well largely because of the dedication of the school’s parents who volunteer their time and their services. Our school asks that each parent give 20 hours of time/per student each year to the school. Parents have many opportunities to support their children’s individual classes and the school as a whole. Keep on the lookout for volunteer opportunities and class materials “wish lists”! Sign up online at https://www.trackitforward.com/. And the binder All forms of volunteer hours count towards the number requested by the school. Some parents take home materials, prepare them at home, and return them to the teachers in time for the class activities. Some parents chaperone field trips, assist in the classroom, contribute to work parties, recruit other parents and community members for projects, and/or serve as classroom coordinators. Serving on the WPG and WCC are also important volunteer activities.
