Volunteer at DaVinci Academy!
DaVinci Academy recognizes and appreciates that families want to be actively involved in the education of their children. In addition, research shows that students whose parents are involved in their school perform better academically and socially. As a result, parents are encouraged to be involved and volunteer at DaVinci Academy at least 20 hours per school year (10 hours per school year for single parent families).
Purposes of Having Volunteers
- To enrich and enhance students’ learning
- To enable teachers to offer more individual attention to their students
- To free other school personnel to meet the needs of students more effectively by providing volunteer assistance
- To strengthen the partnership between families, community and the school
- To promote the importance of volunteerism to our student population
Volunteer Hour Tracking
HelpCounter, our volunteer tracking software, is available through a kiosk at the front desk during normal business hours. You can also access the system at home through HelpCounter Home Access to enter the volunteer hours that you may be putting in outside of school, as well as update your contact information and volunteer interests. If your e-mail address is not in the HelpCounter system, please email Mrs. Falkowski or add your own profile using the kiosk at the front desk.
To ensure the safety of our students and staff, every volunteer is required to have a current background check on file with DaVinci Academy. If you do not have a background check on file, please obtain the required form from the front office or select the link to the left to print immediately. Volunteers must complete a background check every two years. Volunteers are asked to pay a $10 processing fee* for each background check submitted. Checks should be made payable to DaVinci Academy. Return all forms and payments to the main office, ATTN: Volunteer Coordinator.
*Please do not let the processing fee keep you from volunteering at school. If you cannot afford the fee at this time, please contact Ms. Silkey-Jones to make alternative arrangements.
