Our school emphasizes service. Parents and guardians who have chosen Seaside Community Charter School for their children have chosen to be participants in their children’s education.
Each SCCS family is asked to contribute a minimum of 20 hours (30 hours if you have more than one child at the school) each school year. Because this is a grassroots endeavor and so much is needed, ideally, we would love for each family to volunteer 40 to 60 hours.
Friends of SCCS are welcome to contribute any amount of time. There are many ways to contribute, either at the school or from home or on the weekends.
If you need ideas or assistance, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please keep track of your volunteer hours using this form: Volunteer Documentation Log.
Children benefit from parent involvement. Without past volunteers, Seaside Community Charter School would not exist today. SCCS recognizes that volunteer time requirements can be challenging to manage, and there are times within every family when you are able to give more, and sometimes give less. We focus on the joyful giving that is inherent in community life, while recognizing that SCCS truly needs and appreciates the active support and gifts of its volunteers. Additionally, research is clear that parent involvement positively impacts student achievement. Being involved in volunteer or service activities increases adults' and children's well-being and their awareness of others, which increases compassion and empathy.
