“Many Hands Make Light Work”
Whether you are an AmPark family member, staff, community member, or friend, there is a huge variety of ways you can help the school. We need time and money, hands and skills.
We have volunteer opportunities to fit everyone… whether you have a few spare hours every day or 5 minutes once a year, whether you have lots of money or less than none at all. You can volunteer working from home, or at the school, or from where you work. We need parent volunteers speaking different languages and from different backgrounds. We have open leadership positions, and a steady supply of “worker-bee” jobs.
If you can support the school with money (no amount too big or small):
The AmPark PA is collecting funds directly… leave an envelope directed towards the “AmPark PA” in our box at the school main office, or contact us to send an envelope in your child’s backpack folder. The AmPark PA is a 501 (c) (3) organization, so your donation is tax-deductible.
Our teachers also post wishlists through DonorsChoose. Click here to give.
If you can support the school with stuff:
Check the site or PA communications for information on what we need. We also collect goods and services for our annual Auction. If you have an item, gift certificate, or service to offer, just contact any member of the PA and we will put it to good use.
If you can support the school with time:
Volunteer opportunities are constantly arising. Please contact us and let us know your availability.
Also, parents should consider joining the PA and attending our meetings. The meetings are open to all parents and everyone has a voice!
If you need reimbursement for any expenses incurred for the PA, please use the AmPark PA Expense Request Form to make a request.
