Volunteerism

Volunteer at RMAE

It takes a village to raise a child” and this is even more true for the success of all our children at RMAE.

By choosing to attend Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen, your family has already recognized the importance of something different in your school experience.  One of the many differences RMAE offers families is the opportunity to be involved.

RMAE has an expectation that each family volunteers 60 hours per year, and the hours logged can be used by RMAE to further fund our school through grant opportunities.  Hours can be logged by clicking on the link below, or using the paper/pencil log sheet and turning them in to the office.

Interested in volunteering at RMAE?  Contact PTO Volunteer coordinator, Tonje Williams 303-548-4910

RMAE Volunteer Ideas

The following is a list of some volunteer ideas for RMAE, ranging from school hours, weekends, and seasonal options.  There is something for everyone.  If you feel there is a need that is not fulfilled, please feel free to contact me.  This list is constantly changing and growing.

RMAE PTO

RMAE’s Parent Teacher Organization is invaluable in its purpose to organize volunteers and its support of special projects and fundraisers for our school. Please contact the PTO to find ways for your family to get involved. Currently we are looking for volunteers to fill the current roles:

  • President Elect
  • AAA Board Rep
  • Welcoming Committee coordinator

In class volunteer

K-5 classrooms have a wide variety of needs in the classroom throughout the year. This can be a weekly commitment to the occasional party or event. Please contact your classroom coordinator for more information or specifics of what you can offer in the classroom setting.

At home work for teachers

This is a great opportunity for parents who are unable to come into the classroom, and need flexibility in their volunteering. Contact your classroom teacher to volunteer and complete projects needed at home.

Lunch/Recess monitor

Everyone needs a break, especially our hard-working teachers and classroom assistants. Consider coming in to monitor kids during recess or lunch. This is usually organized through the classroom teacher or classroom coordinator.

Grant writing

Contact the RMAE foundation for more information about current grant opportunities that can be pursued. The office is located in building 1 next to the Library.

AAA

The purpose of the AAA Board subcommittee is to collaborate with the Director, Faculty, and Board of Directors in order to measure the health and effectiveness of our academic program.

Uniform Swap

There is nothing like free clothing!  We encourage parents to donate gently used clothing and take what is needed for their children.  This usually takes place during registration and back to school events at the start of the school year.

Pizza Sales

This is traditionally a 7th grade fundraising opportunity to earn money for SeaCamp.  Help is needed on a weekly basis during lunch.  Contact the 7th grade fundraising coordinator for more information.

Spirit Wear

Giving the students a chance to wear anything other than dress code is always appreciated by the kids.  A coordinator organizes opportunities for spirit wear orders several times a year, usually at the start of the school year.

School Dances

School dances are fundraising opportunities by grade, and are organized by fundraising chairs.  They occur several times a year.  Please contact your middle school fundraising chairperson for more information.

Field Day

These events are organized through the PE department, and is generally split by age group – K-4 in the fall, 5-8 in the spring.  Contact the PE office for more information and volunteer opportunities.

Library

Our library is 100% volunteer maintained.  We are on the honor system for loans, and each class has a coordinator that runs the library visits.  Please contact your classroom coordinator for more information.

Office assistance

Contact the front office to see if there is a need for filing, organizing, etc.

School maintenance and repair

Usually before the start of the school year, and periodically in the summer, there are a number of “work days” that are designated to help keep our campus in shape. Additionally, if you have skills in electrical, plumbing, and general carpentry, there are many projects that may tap into your expertise and provide an opportunity to give back within your schedule. Contact the front office for a list of current needs and projects.

Campus beautification

This is similar to maintenance and repair, especially if you are handy with plants, mulch, or a paint brush! Contact the front office for needs in this area.

Snow removal

If you find yourself at school early on a snowy day and happened to remember a shovel, this opportunity is for you. We are always needing assistance clearing walkways, steps, and helping cars that inevitably get stuck trying to get up our road.

Holiday food drive

This is a coordinator position that organizes the various classroom coordinators for a food drive around the winter holiday season.

Lost and found

What a task it is maintaining our resale shop . . . I mean lost and found! It is currently located in building 1 just inside the double doors, and needs regular maintenance to keep the avalanche in check. Even giving a few moments before pick-up or after drop-off makes a world of difference. This one is easy – sort according to item, and hang items on available hangers. You may just find your own items!

Talent show

This fantastic performance is organized currently by Mr. Martins and Mrs. Moritz, and generally occurs in the winter.  They are always in need of help, so if this peaks your interest, please contact them directly.

Auction

Always the biggest event of the year, the auction provides our school with a boost to our income, generally occurring in February.  Each year there is a lead coordinator, who is always looking for committee members.  Please contact PTO for more information.

Welcome Committee

This opportunity occurs in the spring, as we welcome new parents to our school for the next school year, as well as the back-to-school event.  These events are organized through PTO.

Breakfast with Santa

This very popular fundraiser occurs in early December, and is generally organized through the middle school fundraising committee.

Book Fairs

The RMAE Scholastic book fair is set up in our school library, usually in November, and is always looking for set-up help, tear-down help, and 2 hour shifts during the actual fair.

Community Service Day

A school-wide event occurring at the end of April or early May when RMAE gives back.  There are opportunities to coordinate an effort for an entire class, or help out on the day of.  Projects range from campus beautification, working with the elderly, homeless, or the environment.  We reach out to all aspects of our community and this coincides with Global Community Service Day.  Contact your classroom coordinator for information on how to help.

Original Art fundraiser

This fundraiser occurs in November, offering families beautiful alternative gifts to families centered on your child’s artwork. Distribution help is always needed, and is usually completed in 2-3 hours. Contact PTO for more information.
