Social Coordinator (all grades)

You will find this one of the easiest volunteer positions available and you’ll enjoy the opportunity to meet some of your child’s friends and teachers! Coordinator communicates dates/times of socials for the weekly newsletter and solicits volunteers from each grade. Purchases all supplies for socials in advance and maintains inventory.

Time Commitment:
6th grade coordinator: socials are 3-5pm in the cafeteria in the fall and spring.
7th grade coordinator: socials are 6:30-8:30pm in the gym in the fall and spring.
8th grade coordinator: social is 6:30-8:30pm in the spring.

8th Grade Moving on Ceremony (two 8th grade + three 6th/7th grade parents)

Work with Clarke assistant principals to give our 8th graders and their families a memorable farewell. Help with setup at LHS, organize the post ceremony reception, and recruit 6th/7th grade parents to help with the reception.

Time Commitment: 3-4 hours each in June

Team Parents (all grades)

Under the guidance of the VP of Team Parents, help team teachers with any requests they might have. Only responsibilities are to send out occasional emails on behalf of the lead Teacher or PTO, ask for supplies and/or create a sign up genius for any team volunteer activities your lead teacher may need help with, and host one teacher appreciation breakfast. Much easier than elementary!

Time Commitment: 6-7 hours total

Clarke Night Out Volunteers (6 to 8 volunteers)

Clarke Night Out is the JCSA’s major fundraiser and social event of the year, bringing parents and staff together for a fun evening. The CNO Co-Chairs and their team set the date, choose the venue and theme, organize the silent auction, sell tickets, and run the evening.
