Volunteers

Volunteer with Friends of Cleveland

Volunteers have an enormous impact on our school.

We welcome and encourage you to donate your time or expertise to help Cleveland Elementary School faculty, administration, students and families.

There are many ways you can help. We can always find things you can do to contribute.

We have many committees, projects, and initiatives to help Friends of Cleveland meet it’s goals.

 

Volunteers Needed

 Friends of Cleveland will be auctioning off class art projects at the Celebrate Cleveland Auction in March. We are looking for one parent per grade to help prep, help students make and finalize each grade’s art project. Email clevelandroomparent@gmail.com if you are interested in helping!

IMPORTANT: CPS Volunteer Policy

CPS now requires all volunteers to follow a few quick steps to be registered as official volunteers through the CPS online process. All event volunteers, classroom helpers, field trip chaperones and guest readers must be registered.
