Parent Volunteer

At West Orange, creating a caring and cooperative community to support student learning is at the center of what we do every day. In order for us to provide additional enrichment opportunities for our students, we need volunteers to help us make the events a success. Families are expected to volunteer 10 hours per family.  Each teacher uses parent volunteers in different ways; however, the common thread in all classes is the desire to have all volunteers focus on supporting student learning.  We gladly welcome parents, guardians, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and nannies who love your child and are willing to commit to completing the volunteer hours. We ask that these individuals are listed in the emergency contact.  Click here to submit your volunteer opportunity request form.
