Parents must perform 20 hours of service for the first child and 10 hours of service for each additional child. For example, parents with one child attending Gateway Charter High School and another attending Gateway Charter School must perform a total of 30 hours to be divided equally between the two schools.
Parents have many opportunities to volunteer their time both at school and at home. To volunteer in classrooms, please make prior arrangement with the teacher so that instructional time is not lost.
It is suggested that a minimum of 2 hours of volunteer service be spent working on school fundraisers and special activities. Parents will receive volunteer time for attending workshops and general parent meetings conducted in the school.
Ways You Can Earn Service Hours:
- Assist in the cafeteria
- Assist teachers with bulletin boards, cutting & craft activities
- Attend PTO meetings, day and evening events
- Volunteer for field day and/or field trips
To volunteer or for more information on current volunteer opportunities please see Volunteer Opportunities or contact the school at (239) 768-3350.
