Time And Talent
The PTA and Soaring Owls Foundation (SOFi) is a volunteer organization and many of the activities in and around Bolton are supported, organized and provided by parents and friends of Bolton. If you have any interest in getting involved, sharing your story and talents, your time, or even moral support. We want you to join us however, wherever it best works for you and your student.
We need help with events, donations, supplies, readers, classroom volunteers and much more. Whether you can take time out to read a story, help with a classroom’s celebration activities, take on coordination of an event, or donate resources and materials, each and every level of assistance is greatly appreciated!
How do I volunteer in my child's classroom?
Contact your child’s teacher via Class Dojo and ask how you can volunteer. Teachers’ volunteer needs vary from classroom to classroom. All teachers need a room parent(s) to help with the facilitation of parties, etc. in the classroom as well as volunteers to help with items such as bulletin board creation, etc.
Paperwork Required to Volunteer
For the safety of our children, ALL school volunteers must complete the required paperwork before volunteering. There are 3 volunteer levels:
Level 1: Volunteer is a non-district personnel who will have no interaction with students.
Level 2: Volunteer is a non-district personnel who will have supervised interaction with students.
Level 3: Volunteer is a non-districk personnel who will have unsupervised interaction with students.
Most of our volunteers will be Level 2 volunteers.
You must complete the following steps to be a volunteer:
- Submit a Volunteer Release Form to be on file with the school and the Office of Saftey and Security. Please complete both pages.
- Submit a copy of your driver’s license to the front office
- Acknowledge that your identity will be run through the Sex Offender Database.
You can fax your documents to 404.350.2853 or email them to Melanie Haley at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will need to show your driver's license at the front desk when you arrive for your first volunteer visit to confirm it matches the one on file.
