Volunteers: We Need You
One measure of an effective school is the support the community and the parents lend to the school. Compadre is very fortunate that we are expanding our clubs and co-curricular programs to coincide with our newly renovated campus. We need volunteers to provide support in different ways in order to enhance our students' success.
Volunteers will help to set a positive tone through their support of students and faculty. Research shows that open communication between parents and teachers benefits children in a number of ways. Level of academic achievement, attendance, attitudes about school, self-esteem and behavior all improve when parents become involved in a child's schooling. Even more important, the schools themselves are more effective when they can count on the efforts of parents.
Volunteering at Compadre Academy
The goals for our volunteer program are:
- To help our teachers and staff provide an outstanding educational experience for every child.
- To provide assistance so that our curriculum may broaden.
- To make use of the expertise of community members.
- To exemplify a commitment in partnership between parents, educators and the community and to maintain positive relations between all.
- To develop an environment that encourages friendly communication among the home, school and community.
Compadre Academy has approximately 750 students and over 80 staff members who need the support only volunteers can give them. There are many important tasks to do in support of quality education, and we need YOU as partners in our pursuit of excellence.
