Volunteer

Family engagement is one of the most powerful predictors of kids’ success at school! You don’t need any experience to volunteer, just a passion for Adams’ students!

Take the Family Five-Hour Pledge this year! Five hours of volunteering from every family will create a vibrant school community and promote learning success for every student at Adams. There are volunteer opportunities that match your interests and schedule. Grandparents, older siblings, and other family members are encouraged and welcomed to volunteer!

Weekday Opportunities: Ask to volunteer in your child’s classroom or the parent resource room, or chaperone a field trip. Talk to your child’s teacher, or Adams family liaison Natalie Kemp at natalie.kemp@spps.org.

Helping from home: If you have time at home, but it is difficult for you to come to school during the day or evening, you can help! Email info@adamspto.org to tell us your interests and availability.

Leadership Opportunities: Join a PTO committee. We will have small groups of parents help plan fundraising, events, and advocacy throughout the year. Even better, consider being a PTO officer! Officers are selected each spring. Email info@adamspto.org to find out more!

Host an intern in your home for the 2020-2021 school year, or volunteer to be a Tio Family (supporting family who doesn’t host). We will need 7 host families and 14 tio families next year. To learn more, email adamsinterns@gmail.com
