Special Volunteer Positions
Grade Level Coordinator (GLC) Positions
The grade level coordinator (GLC) is responsible for coordinating grade level events. This includes working with teachers, helping team parents who are executing the events as well as communicating information and/or needs to the volunteer coordinator for a given grade throughout the school year. The GLC will have a major role for coordinating events that require grade level participation like Halloween Party, Valentine Party, teacher/paraeducator gifts, and End of Year Picnic. Interested? Check “Grade Level Coordinator” in Volunteer Interest Form.
Team Parent Positions
The team parents are responsible for working together with their GLC for grade level events. While team parents won't be assigned to a single homeroom, team parents will make sure all homeroom/grade level events go smoothly within a given grade. The team parents will have a major role in coordinating the events like Halloween Party, Valentine Party, and End of Year Picnic. Interested? Check “Team Parent” in the Volunteer Interest Form.
