Parent Volunteer Expectations
Anchorage Montessori School relies on the involvement and generosity of its parent body as well as the Board of Directors, staff and general community. Student tuition and available grants for education fund only part of the costs of operating AMS programs. Accordingly, parents, staff and Board Members are invited to participate in community, educational and fund raising events throughout the year. Parents are expected to provide a minimum of 10 hours of volunteer service to the school each school year. This is an hourly commitment per family, and can be fulfilled in many ways, including participation in fund raising activities, building and grounds maintenance, teacher/classroom support, school promotion, committee membership, and parent activities. A list of volunteer preferences and options will be regularly updated by the Administration. Parents keep track of their own volunteer hours using the Volunteer Service Tracking form or similar log. We appreciate every parent’s commitment and contribution, and hope that volunteering will provide every member of the AMS community an opportunity to participate directly in their child’s educational experience.
