Partner-Teacher Fellowship Volunteer Opportunities

The Partner Teacher Fellowship exists to assist the school with events directly related to our children, projects that the teachers and school wish to accomplish, and as an opportunity to unite the body of the school. The PTF is a volunteer group made up of the parents, grandparents and teachers. There’s nothing to join. No mandatory meetings or commitments. Simply jump in wherever your interests lie. Our school is growing and we’d would love to have your participation!

Email the Partner-Teacher Fellowship to inquire about any of these activities/events. PTF@SalemChristian.org [/expand]

Room Parent

Room Parents are full-year commitment
All grades work closely with the teacher to meet needs of the class

Being involved in your child’s classroom is a great way to help! Room parents, at the direction of the teacher, coordinate parties, seasonal events, reading help, classroom projects, photocopying, supply preparation for projects and much, much more. Even if you do not want to take a coordination role, you are welcome to help!
Parents volunteering in the classrooms must have a current background security clearance. Please contact the school office for more details on this very quick and easy process.

Picture Day

Picture Day is usually the third Monday in September
2 Helpers for 2 Hours Contact the school office

Two helpers are needed to work with teachers to help younger students right before their pictures are taken. The photographer usually offers two helpers each a 50% off your picture purchase coupon. Check with the office to determine if they are continuing this.

Grandparents Day

Coordinator and volunteers Needed for setup, serving and cleanup

This is a day dedicated to making the Grandparents feel special! There are several events going on around the school that day. The PTF is responsible for the luncheon.
