Volunteers are a valuable resource in our school. Watch classroom and school newsletters and email announcements for opportunities to match your time, talent and skills. Families may record 5 volunteer hours for attending the fall fundraiser and 5 additional hours for attending the Spring Gala. Volunteer hours for FCA students do not count toward the family total; however, volunteer hours for older siblings/children may be added to the family total. Volunteer hours should be recorded in the family account on Sycamore. Each K-8 family is expected to give 20 hours of volunteer time yearly as part of their tuition package or be billed $13 an hour at the end of the year. Preschool families are also encouraged to volunteer. Below is a brief overview of several volunteer opportunities.
