Volunteers are the lifeblood of Aurora Waldorf School. Any task carried out by a volunteer helps reduce operating costs, and volunteering is also a great way to get to know the school and the community. Volunteering can encompass many activities from supporting special events at the school to serving on a school committee in monthly meetings.
Our parent engagement program requires all parents to volunteer in some capacity and we welcome all community members to join us in a variety of ways to support our school. A minimum of 20% or two hours, whichever is greater, of each family's volunteer hours must be fulfilled in designated Winter Faire tasks, which have always been dependent on everyone helping out. The remaining hours may be fulfilled by participating in other volunteer opportunities announced throughout the year in the newsletter and via email. Students in Grades 4 through 6 may volunteer with their parents and have their hours counted towards the family's requirement. Students in Grades 7 and 8 may volunteer without parental supervision. Families may also donate volunteer hours to other families.
