WatersToday volunteer coordinators, Vanessa Summer and Hope Nichols, will be sharing volunteer opportunities as they arise throughout the school year. Check out the WatersToday fundraising events page for a list of annual activities – all need volunteers. Also be sure to sign up for the Green Notes email (see "Subscribe" in right column) and like/follow the Waters Facebook page to hear about new requests from teachers and staff. Have some free time or flexibility in your schedule? Get on the Waters Volunteer Helper List by emailing us.
We promise there is a volunteer opportunity to suit every Waters parent, no matter how much time you have to spare. Your choice to help out can be as easy as spending an hour or two on a teacher project, setting up an art show, working in the garden, or judging the science fair. Fundraising events like the Holiday Craft Market, Big Night, the Scholastic Book Fair and more, are happening all year long, offering parents a fun way to get to know each other and support our great school.
Important Volunteer Info: If you plan on chaperoning a field trip, helping out at Harvest Day, or any other volunteer opportunities at Waters, then you need to fill out the CPS volunteer application. It only takes a minute to complete and the whole process is really easy. (On the application, parents are "Level 2" volunteers and do not need to go through the fingerprint criminal background check.) After submitting the online form, visit the Waters main office at your leisure and show identification. After that you’re all set to volunteer – and we can’t wait to meet you!
