Volunteering and Mentoring

Volunteers and Mentors are an important part of our school community and contribute significantly to the success of our school and our students.  The Family & Community Liaison coordinates all volunteers and mentors. 

Our Family & Community Liaison is Mary Ruth Bumgarner. She can be reached by phone at 727-893-2643, or via email by clicking here. She is in the office between 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m, Monday - Friday.

Volunteers

Volunteers MUST register through the Family & Community Liaison prior to volunteering.  The Liaison will coordinate the best situation based upon each volunteer's talents, skill, abilities, and the needs of the teachers and school.  Don't worry - volunteers will receive any training specific to their reponsibilities.

Parents/guardians must be registered volunteers in order to chaperone field trips.  Submit your volunteer registration form (along with a copy of your driver's license) early as it can take several weeks for the paperwork to be processed.

Mentors

Mentors are volunteers who are assigned to a specific student for encouragement and support. Mentors are not to be tutors or teachers, but rather to be a friend and role model. Click here for information about mentoring and upcoming mentoring workshops.
