How many hours is my family committed to?
Each family is asked to commit to 30 hours during the school year. Volunteering is a great way to meet other families, see the classrooms in action, and create community. From dropping off coffee to big events like the Jog-a-thon to stuffing folders in the privacy of your own home, there are endless ways to get involved. MS and HS students may volunteer toward family hours.
What counts toward my hours?
Volunteering for WPO events and non-WPO events! Opportunities may be listed in the Waverly Weekly News, Room Parent emails, or on this website.
Can I get all my hours done at once?
Yes, by being a Room Parent, a Waverly Fund Class Agent, or chairing a WPO event/activity. These include:
- Pizza Friday Coordinator (1or 2 people needed for each campus)
- Choice Lunch Coordinator
- Farm Volunteer Coordinator
- Library Volunteer Coordinator
- Waverly Dines Out Coordinator
- Chair of a Waverly WPO Event. Most events have multiple Chair roles.
Where do I log my hours?
When you sign up to volunteer at an event/for an activity using sign-up-genius, it will log your hours. For your other hours, each campus has a “Parent Hours Log Book” where you can record the hours you have worked – see the receptionist at any campus for this Log Book. Final logs are due March 30. You can keep your log page at home and turn it in by March 30, or you can fill out your log page in the Log Book as you go throughout the year.
