There are many ways parent volunteers can get involved at Diamond, including:
- Working at the Diamond School Store (see more below)
- Helping at a Teacher/Staff appreciation lunch
- Chaperoning a student social
- Joining a PTA committee
- Helping at the Book Fair
Volunteer opportunities are announced regularly in our weekly PTA newsletter. To learn how you can get involved, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Diamond Store, organized and staffed by parent volunteers, is open every day during lunch blocks to sell school supplies. Working there is a fun and easy way to connect with students and teachers, to meet new parents, and of course, to spot your own offspring!
The two-hour shifts are Mondays through Fridays from 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM. Volunteers work in pairs, and have a shift every 4 to 6 weeks, usually on the same day. That makes about 5 shifts throughout the year. New volunteers are paired with experienced ones to learn the (very simple) store procedures. Please note that the schedule is set at the beginning of the school year, so please look out for the sign-up information sent out at the end of the summer.
Whether you enjoy cooking, decorating, or event planning, this will be the perfect committee for you... (of course we also would never turn away a store bought item). The Hospitality Committee is a quick and easy way to volunteer. This Committee coordinates decor and food contributions for school events that include Diamond families, teachers, and staff.
