As a part of each family’s commitment to our school, we request that families contribute their time and expertise through our volunteer hours program. The parent-led volunteer hours team as well as the guides or administrative staff may request assistance on projects such as painting a classroom, chaperoning children on outings, building a labyrinth, or serving on our Parent Advisory Committee (PAC). Parents often discover that these volunteer activities are not only fun, but also help create a stronger sense community within the school.

Each family is required to contribute a minimum of 15 hours (8 hours for single families) of volunteer time per year or pay the equivalent of $20 per hour. We request that 3 of these hours be in support of our annual school auction. We welcome the assistance of extended family members to help you in completing your hours. The school wishes to thank you in advance for your participation in our volunteer hours program.

“I have especially enjoyed helping create and nurture community-building programs like Community Connections and our Games at Recess Program. Through such programs, The Portland Montessori School encourages children to think holistically about the world around them and to begin considering the profound impact they can make on helping others—at any age.”
