The OWL hours volunteering program was created to encourage parent involvement within NDCS. We strongly believe parent involvement is a key part to student success and keeps our school thriving. This program requires each family enrolled at NDCS participate in at least 12 volunteer hours (per student) per term with a total of 24 hours (per student) for the entire school year. Families must complete 12 hours (per student) between September and January, and 12 hours (per student) between February and June.
Each family is also required to attend 5 PTO meetings every school year, and help with one fundraiser.
There are many volunteer needs – assisting on field trips, planning room parties, assisting with lunch and/or recess, attending PTO meetings, school work days, and helping with fundraisers. Remember volunteer work and volunteer travel time are tax deductible items.
To help our student’s teachers and class we need volunteers to be Room Parents. Our goal is to have a Room Parent for each class. Please talk with your child’s teacher if you have questions or are interested in volunteering. Some duties would include:
We believe it truly does take a village! OWL hours can be earned by most any family member including grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles, cousins, moms, dads, and older siblings.
Each OWL hour is valued at $25 dollars. You will receive a bill at the end of each term for any incomplete OWL hours (per student). We understand that life can get busy. If you are unable to complete any OWL hours, you will be charged $300 (per student) per term. Remember donations also count as hours!
