Parent Volunteers and Background Processes

Please consider volunteering to be a room parent as it is a wonderful way to get to know other parents and your child’s teacher. It is also a way to make a valuable contribution to Riverwalk Academy. The role may vary from classroom to classroom depending on the teacher’s need, however, the focus is on being a liaison between the teacher and the parents regarding activities and volunteer opportunities in the classroom.

In order to participate and volunteer at Riverwalk Academy you must complete the forms below as well as a background SLED check through the link provided below. Once you have completed all tasks and sent in proof of your Background Check we will add you to our list of Parent Volunteers. Once you have been added to the Parent Volunteer List, you may either choose a teacher to volunteer with by emailing that specific teacher and setting up an appointment with them (you must have an appointment set with the teacher in order to volunteer) or you can be added to a volunteer shared list where teachers and staff members will reach out to you when they need help within the school (to be added to this list please email info@riverwalkacademy.com).
