Parent Teacher Fellowship
The Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) is designed to show our support for the teachers and staff at the Academy. There are wonderful opportunities to serve our school and students while meeting our volunteer requirements. We meet only four times per year and have developed fun events to encourage and accommodate our parent volunteers.
Please see our full list of events!
Please fill out our volunteer form!
PTF has given us the opportunity to be more a part of our daughter's classroom throughout the year. We've really enjoyed getting to know the other students and faculty during our time at the school. Volunteering is something we both really enjoy and our daughter loves when we come to help her classroom.
Serve your teachers and children throughout the year!
Join our 2020-2021 Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) team!
Choose to be a ROOM PARENT or a PARTY PLANNER
This is a fun way to get involved, be creative, and make a positive impact on your child’s year. (It’s also a great way to meet your required 15 service hours)
ROOM PARENT: Coordinates the following events with classroom parents.
Class Ambassador: Email communication coordinator between PTF, teacher, and other class parents. You will receive direction/templates from the Room Parent Coordinator.
PTF Meeting Attendance: As a room parent, we ask that you or someone from your class, attend all four PTF meetings. These will be quarterly and possibly virtually for 2020. Dates and times TBD, other than the initial Meet & Greet.
Wednesday Lounge (TBD for 2020): Last Wednesday of the month one or two parents will cover the classroom allowing for the teacher to have lunch with their peers. Room parents coordinate this coverage at the beginning of the school year using Sign-Up Genius. Time to be determined by your teacher.
Teachers’ Lounge (TBD for 2020): Once a year, each class is asked to coordinate a lunch for the teaching staff. If your class provides lunch, please ensure all items are pre-packaged during this time. Lunch should be laid out by 11:45am. Set up for approximately 35 people. $50 will be provided by the PTF for each class to help in the total cost.
Service Baskets: Coordinate with your teacher and put together a basket of snacks for assigned community workers in April.
PARTY PLANNER: Coordinates the following events with classroom parents. All parties for 2020 need to be approved through your classroom’s teacher.
Holiday Feasts/Celebrations: Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine Feasts, etc. will be celebrated in the classrooms. Coordinate with your teacher about the plans and solicit help from the classroom parents.
Teacher and Designated Staff Member Birthday: Send out an email reminder to parents when your teacher and designated staff member has her/his birthday. See class packet for information and ideas.
Teacher Appreciation Week: Send out an email reminder to your class to help your teacher feel loved and appreciated. See class packet for ideas.
WCA Float Winter Carnival Preparation: Collaborate with the PTF team and your classroom to help decorate the WCA float.
