Required Volunteering Commitment:

Our school is structured as a parent/teacher cooperative. Family participation is central to the success of the CNCS program. Please plan to participate in the following ways:

  • Every family contributes 40 hours per year
  • Every family joins at least one school committee

This year we are instituting a new process. Here’s how it works:

  1. Your family’s summer packet will include a form called Our Family Commitment to help you plan how you will co-create CNCS this school year. Will you run an enrichment club? Attend building work days? Help out at recess? All of the above? Make a plan for how you will meet your family’s 40-hour commitment.
  2. Our Family Commitment also asks you to think about what committee you will join and what talents, skills, interests, or other aspects of yourself you might be willing to share with the City Neighbors community.
  3. At the end of each trimester, we’ll return a copy of your Family Commitment to you and ask that you estimate the number of hours you contributed in the trimester. It’s a great time to reflect on how you are meeting your commitment.

Paper forms are available on the table outside the office, which can be filled out and turned in to the office.

It is extremely important for everyone to understand that when school is not open because of a weather delay or closure, there is no one on site to watch your children. There is no Before or After care provided during weather closures, and staff are not available to watch your children. Please do not bring children to school during these times.
